Nicole Teyechea Mcneil, PhD is an award-winning teacher and nationally recognized presenter on effective instruction for language learners. Growing up in the border town of Nogales, Arizona, Nicole was educated in a restrictive English-only school system. As a result she became an advocate of bilingual/dual language learning and opened two Spanish Immersion preschools in Phoenix, Arizona. With over 20 years of experience in teaching and educational leadership, Nicole is passionate about ensuring language learners achieve both language literacy and academic success. She has taught every grade from preschool to 12th grades as a bilingual teacher, ESL/SEI teacher, gifted teacher, literacy specialist, instructional strategist and also served as a district curriculum director. She has consulted for Pearson/Savvas and Bureau of Education and Research (BER), served as a professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University and is most proud of her two, bilingual children.
