Stuart Nicol

Room 10

My Name is Stuart Nicol and I am excited to be joining the staff and the Rimu team at ANI for 2024. I grew up in Auckland but spent a couple of years travelling around the world when I was younger. I have taken a 3-year break from teaching to pursue a business opportunity that arose. I am excited to return to teaching though. I previously taught years 5 & 6 at a couple of schools in Auckland and I have also had experience working with High School students more recently as well. My approach to teaching is definitely to encourage students to learn their own skills and strengths and develop independence in a safe and creative environment. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the cinema, playing a bit of disc golf or riding my bike. I have a dog at home who often comes running with me so if you see us out around Mt Eden just give us a wave! Looking forward to a fun year!
