Nicole Garber is excited to be in her eighth year teaching at Pardes. Before becoming a member of the Pardes staff, Mrs. Garber taught for six years at Rodeph Sholom School in New York City. Mrs. Garber currently teaches second grade but has also taught first, third and fourth grades. After graduating from Horizon High School, she went to the University of Michigan where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management and Communications. She used this degree at her first job out of college working in the Community Relations Department at the National Basketball Association in New York City. It was through her work with schools that she found her passion for working with children. As a result, she decided to make a career change and received her Master’s Degree in Education at Hunter College.
