Nicole McGrath, MEd, in curriculum and instruction, has been working with children and families impacted by developmental, mental health, and learning differences in a variety of roles since 2005. She has a passion for creating intentional collaboration among home, school, and community settings to create lifelong systems of support. Incorporating a problem-solving approach focused on skill development and ongoing growth, she aims to honor existing and future needs, skills, and experiences of all individuals involved.

In her current role as a teacher consultant, she works with school districts to implement tiered intervention support through effective teaming and evidence-based practices. Nicole is certified to teach special education across a variety of needs. She has experience in the classroom with students impacted by autism spectrum disorder, behavioral and learning disabilities as well as other extensive needs. Over her 15-year teaching career, she has taught birth through middle school in local, center-based, and homebound programs. In each setting, she has been able to learn from a variety of talented educators, therapists, service providers, and families that allowed her to create supportive environments focused on functional and communication skills. Nicole is a Tier 1 trainer of content for the Statewide Autism Resources and Training project, and Tier 1 implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports through the Michigan Department of Education. She is also a certified Youth Mental Health First Aid trainer.

Outside of work, you can find Nicole at one of her three sons’ sporting events with a bag of snacks and fidgets, outdoors in the summer, or under a blanket in the Michigan winter, probably listening to music or an audiobook on one earbud because she lost the other.
