Dr. Nickells Welcome

Walter Nickells, D.C.

This is my tenth year to teach professionally. And let me tell you, I still love teaching! I began my professional career as a Doctor of Chiropractic twenty years ago. I managed a successful private practice for 16 years before deciding to teach full time. I loved the practice of chiropractic and still do. Nevertheless, teaching has always been a passion of mine and I don't regret changing professions at all. I strive to bring my professional medical experience into every lesson so that my students not only learn the academics of of health care systems, but also have the opportunity to learn what happens in the real world. It is a privilege to work with my students, your children, here at Lockhart High School. 

In addition, I currently serve as the Career and Technical Education director for Lockhart Independent School District. It is my pleasure to help guide, direct and implement the current Career and Technical programs here at LHS. We continue to seek, research, learn and implement ways to make our Career and Technical departments second to none. 

                                                        If there is anything I can do for you, as a parent or your student, please do not hesitate to call me at 512-398-0409 or e-mail me at walter.nickells@lockhart.txed.net
