Hi! I’m Bonnie Nieves 👋🏻

Founder of Educate On Purpose Coaching and Consulting.

My career began 20 years ago as a paraprofessional in a vocational high school. Since then, I have been teaching and designing curriculum for life science courses.

Now, my passion is helping educators create immersive and responsive learning experiences.

I have experience with EdReports as a reviewer, copy editor, and review facilitator.

I have infused SEL, technology, and SDGs into all aspects of my teaching and love helping others do the same.

Here are some of my favorite podcast guest appearances to help you get to know me.

Melody’s Book Chat!

Grateful to Mel who helped launch my book, Be Awesome On Purpose: Using reflection as a tool to teach with C.A.R.E.

In the book, I describe how I became a student-centered gradeless teacher and how I used my reflections to turn my failures into learning experiences.
