Mr. Nichols @ Woodsville High School

A little about Mr. Nichols ~


I am originally
 from a small, rural town in Maine and graduated high school with a class of 86 students. I taught for the first few years at a high school in Florida with 3,000+ students, where I gained experience as an administrator , ESE Behavioral Specialist, and Social Studies teacher, before coming to Woodsville High School in 2008. 

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Social Sciences from the University of Maine at Farmington and a Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts . I am also currently enrolled in the Master's Degree program at Southern New Hampshire University studying Communications & Public Relations.

I am part of the WHS 9th Grade Team, the WHS Economics Department Chairperson, and the SAU #23 Technology Committee. At WHS, I teach Advanced Computer Applications,
21st
Century Media & Communications, World History, World Geography Intro. and CP, US History II Honors, Economics CP & Honors, and run the WHS Internship Program.

I also currently serve as the
 Adviser to WHS FBLA  , WHS Youth & Government and  WoodsvilleNH.com < I consider myself a total history and technology geek and am not afraid to admit it! I also teach at VLACS and run my own semi-successful business. I am an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics and the Boston Bruins.
