I was born Nicholas Michael Jerrold in San Francisco and have lived in the Bay Area my entire life. San Bruno, Millbrae, Belmont, and San Carlos are the cities in which I have lived. The schools I attended include El Crystal Elementary, Taylor Middle School, and Mills High School. After graduating from high school, I attended the College of San Mateo, and later, transferred to California State University Hayward. It was at CSUH that I earned an appreciation for and a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics. Upon graduation from college, I pursued different jobs in the retail industry that required a variety of skills. After a few years in retail, I was looking to grow professionally and desired a greater challenge in my life. It was at this time that I enrolled in the single subject credential program at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. One year later, I began teaching at St. Charles School. I am now enjoying my fourth year at St. Charles School and couldn't be happier!
