My name is Nicole Geist, and I am the Education Specialist for grades four through eight. I attended San Diego State University for my undergraduate degree, where I received a major in Psychology and minor in Spanish. I then proceeded to continue my education path and joined Teach for America, where I pledged to work towards a better education system that includes equity. I acquired my Preliminary Credential and Masters in Mild/Moderate Special Education through National University. I continue to grow and learn alongside your children. I love the opportunities Howard Gardner Community School has given me and being a part of such a diverse and wonderful community.
