Dean of Upper School, Nicole Morin
My name is Nicole Morin and I am the Dean of Upper School for the 2017/2018 school year. I have been working as an educator in Western North Carolina since 2005. During time away from school I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors with my family, and reading.
I lived in Southern California until I was 12 and then lived in Western New York until I received my educators licensure from St. John Fisher College. My husband and I were married in 2011 and had our daughter, Eleanor, in 2012. In 2013 I received my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Gardner Webb University. In 2015 I joined the IC Imagine family. Our son, Atticus, was born in November 2015.
I’m very excited to be a part of the IC Imagine community and look forward to watching our school grow.
EC Coordinator, Sean Vervain
I am the EC Coordinator at IC Imagine. I have worked in education supporting students in various capacities for the past 10 years. I have worked with youth in Jamaica, California, Oregon, Virginia, and North Carolina. These diverse experiences have developed in me a unique perspective on student learning and a vision to support an inclusive culture that demonstrates progressive values. I enjoy spending time with my partner and two children when I am away from work. We can be found participating in community activities, gardening, and enjoying the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I remain committed to learning from new experiences, supporting all learners, and developing initiatives to improve educational opportunities for all.
Curriculum Coordinator, Sarah Reams
I am the curriculum coordinator for middle and upper school. I am also the Beginning Teacher Coordinator. I work closely with the teachers to support them and to help them grow and develop their craft. You may see me in the mornings at car line, and in the afternoons at the Kindergarten car line. My husband and I have three children; two attend school here and the third was born in December 2016. I look forward to coming to school every day because I feel like this is truly a great school! The teachers are so invested in each and every student, and I love to watch them learn and grow!
Upper School Counselor, Abbey Gelineau
My name is Abbey Gelineau and I am the Upper School Counselor at IC Imagine. I was born and raised in New England, but moved down to Asheville in July of 2013 to take the Freshman Counselor position at Enka High School. Prior to my three years at Enka, I spent four years at Pioneer Charter School of Science, located in Boston, MA, counseling students in grades 7-12. Before that, my first counseling job was as a 7th grade counselor in San Francisco at Marina Middle School. I graduated from Skidmore College in 2004, where I majored in Sociology and minored in Early Childhood Education and Women’s Studies. I received my Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco in 2008.
Advising adolescents is my true calling, and I am fortunate enough to both teach and learn from my students on a daily basis. When I am not at school, I enjoy cooking, practicing yoga, spending time with friends, and hitting the trails of WNC with my rescue pup, Birdy.
