Director of High School Education

Nicki Sinclair Nicki Sinclair graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education/ English from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 1998, and her Master’s degree in Executive Leadership in 2011 from Gardner Webb University. She started teaching 8th grade language arts in Davidson County for five years before moving to Charlotte in 2003. In CMS she taught high school English and middle school language arts for several years. Nicki then had the opportunity to begin teaching at another local charter school where she taught 7th grade language arts for seven years and was the team leader for three of those years. During her time as team leader, Nicki very much enjoyed collaborating directly with other teachers, facilitating meetings, and building rapport among the grade level. This experience of leading her grade-level team helped her to realize her love for helping teachers and positively impacting students on an administrative level. 

Nicki's belief in seeing  students as individual learners with individual needs is what drew her to Corvian Community School in 2015.   She helped grow and lead the middle school with the addition of 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.  Nicki is excited to now be leading the high school while continuing to uphold Corvian’s core values.  

Nicki lives in the University Area with her husband Drew, and two children, Allison and Ben. She enjoys horseback riding, yoga, biking, acrylic painting, and spending time with her family.
