Nicole Padilla
Colorado Curriculum Specialist
Nicole Padilla resides in Thornton, CO with her husband and two daughters. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Metropolitan State University in Denver and plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in Education as soon as her younger daughter starts Kindergarten. Being a Colorado resident Nicole enjoys hiking, snowboarding, most everything else you can do outside along with spending time with friends and family. Her passion began for education when she decided to pursue a different career back in 2010. Additionally, having children of her own opened her eyes to how important it is to help build the education foundation at home but to also partner and support the teachers that are helping to shape our youth.
