Mrs. Nicole Bader » About


     Attending St. Edward as a student (grades K-8) was such a great experience for me that I wanted give back to the community that helped guide me to where I am today. After graduating from St. Edward I attended Santa Margarita Catholic High School where I enjoyed playing on the soccer team and making lasting friendships. It's so fun to see alumni from both St. Edward and Santa Margarita Catholic High School, here on campus again, now with their own children attending The Parish School. I too have returned to The Parish School as a mom. It is such a joy to see the next generation starting their educational journey in the Catholic School setting.
      After graduating from Santa Margarita Catholic High School, I attended Northern Arizona University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I wanted to continue my education so I attended Pepperdine University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Education and a second Master's Degree in Administration. I taught Kindergarten, First and Second Grade for eight years, here at The Parish School, before entering administration. This is my 15th year at The Parish School and I feel so blessed to be part of such a wonderful community.
