Mrs. Nicole McManus, a product of Florence One Schools, has been employed by F1S for 21 of her 24 years in education. She began working at North Vista in 2018 as the Curriculum Technology Coordinator and has maintained that position for the last four years. Before becoming part of the administration team at North Vista, Mrs. McManus served as a general education and special education classroom teacher in grades 1 through 6.
Mrs. McManus is a graduate of West Florence High School, Francis Marion University and Coastal Carolina University. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, a Master’s Degree in Special Education Learning Disabilities, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration.
Her educational philosophy is that all students are capable of learning and growing when provided a conducive, safe, and accepting learning environment. It is her goal, as an educator, to provide all students with an environment where they feel safe, accepted, and supported. Along with the environment, positive relationships must be established between the children and the educators. Once the environment and positive relationships are established, children are more able to learn, grow and truly express themselves. She is extremely excited to join the Southside Middle School faculty and continue to grow together!
