  • Notes 
    • In 1969 "Niki" graduated from University School, Worthington, OH, which bills itself as "America's Most Experimental Laboratory School." According to the school's March 2002 alumni association newsletter, Nikki earned a Ph.D. in Education, specializing in Creativity, at Ohio State University in March 2001. See www.aaus.net (accessed 8 Aug 2005).

      She has been a visual arts teacher at Kilbourne High School, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon school in the Worthington Ohio school district. She is a member of the NAEA (National Art Education Assoc.) Women's Caucus. In 2004 her book TEACHING DIFFICULT STUDENTS: BLUE JAYS IN THE CLASSROOM was published. It is "an easy-to-read and inspiring text that explores the nature of young people and the effects traditional discipline strategies have on them." See www.rowmaneducation.com (accessed 8 Aug 2005).
