I have been acquainted with Nicole’s work since 2015 [as] a graduate student of mine at Antioch University Seattle. Ms. Parish is an educator, storyteller and community activist with a strong work ethic. She is reliable and focused. She displays a firm and unyielding commitment to expression, environmental education and community building. Nicole is a mature and thoughtful young professional. She engages, listens, reflects then acts. Nicole is very task oriented and she is a strong project manager.

Nicole Parish is a very professional environmental educator. Her classroom management skills are way above par in both classroom and outdoor settings. She has the skills and knowledge of a veteran teacher. Nicole engages students in hands-on learning while giving them a tremendous opportunity to learn independently as well as through guided instruction. Nicole values teaching students how to think…not what to think!
