Hello! My name is Nick Watkins and I am a Google Certified Teacher, instructional coach, and currently teach Science and Social Studies to Middle School students in Puyallup, Washington.
My daily goal is to share my love for project-based and challenge-based learning with my students, and I push them to be creative and innovative in developing solutions to different problems.
I was born in Hong Kong and raised in Beijing, China where I received an outstanding education at the International School of Beijing. From China I headed to Los Angeles where I attended Loyola Marymount University and received my Bachelors Degree in Political Science and Sociology and Masters in Secondary Education through the PLACE Corps Teaching Program.
It was during my years at this Jesuit institution that I realized that I wanted to be involved in education, and am blessed to be able to live out my dream today. I began my teaching career at Transfiguration Catholic School in Los Angeles, and am now excited to be continuing my journey in Washington!
