Nicola Capon

Teacher of the Deaf

Hi, I’m Nicola. I am a Teacher of the Deaf and, before the merge with the Can:Do Group, I worked at the Cora Barclay Centre (CBC).

Prior to that, I had several contracts with the Education Department working in various Teacher of the Deaf roles in mainstream schools, Centres for the Hearing Impaired and District Offices. For a couple of years, I worked part-time at the CBC and part-time at a private college in a special education setting. It was very rewarding having two roles.

In my work at Can:Do, I am fortunate to work as a ToD and with sound field systems. I am passionate about the use of SFS in schools (and other settings) and, again, I enjoy the two roles.

I have a Bachelor of Education (Junior Primary/Primary) and a Bachelor of Special Education from Flinders University. These degrees qualified me as a Teacher of the Deaf. In my early years working at the CBC, I completed a Master of Education part-time from the University of Melbourne.

Having been a member and on the committee of the Australian Association of Teachers of the Deaf for most of my working years, I was fortunate to be awarded Life Membership in 2022.

In my non-work time, I am a volunteer with Scouts SA. Scouting is an international organisation and I have held various roles over many, many years and experienced many fantastic activities and events. I have travelled to most states of Australia and to 8 other countries with Scouts and I’m heading to South Korea in 2023. I also enjoy spending time with my family, camping and travelling with friends and building LEGO in any spare time I find!
