Mrs. Ellen Nicoll is finishing up her 37th year of teaching at Fontbonne Hall Academy. When she first came to Fontbonne, she taught a full PE schedule, Physical Science, was an FA teacher, Year Coordinator and basketball coach, and then swim team moderator. She earned a B.S. from Brooklyn College in Physical Education and her M.S. from St. John's University in School Building Leaders and is First Aid and CPR certified from the AHA. She also taught a Health and Wellness course in the Nursing Dept at the College of Staten Island for for several years.
Mrs. Nicoll currently teaches grades 9, 10, 11 and Senior Leaders in Physical Education and grade 11 Health classes. She is constantly learning and updating all areas of her teaching, and still finds the time to support our students by attending as many games and other events as possible. Mrs. Nicoll was coordinator for the classes of 1986, 1993, 2000, 2005 and 2017 (hello Ladies!) and still enjoys hearing from many of her former students.
Mrs. Nicoll pursued teaching because she really loves working with young adults and watching them grow and develop into wonderful young women. She also really enjoys the family atmosphere at Fontbonne. When not teaching, you can find her at home with her family, Bill, Sarah, Kellie (and their dog Tysen). She enjoys working on her garden, reading, playing Pickleball, or traveling around and touring different baseball stadiums.
