Current Position:

I came to Forgan in the Fall of 2013, and I could not be happier.  I cherish the kids I work with and I love the community of Beaver County, and the town of Forgan.  

Previous Position:

I began my career in education as a para professional at a Charter High School in Lubbock in 1999, and after 8 years of teahing History, Government, English Literature and various electives, I there left to work with Children's Protective Services in Houston. I lasted 1 year before I left to be closer to my son and my new grandkids in Florida. While there I returned to school to earn my Master's degree so that I could do what I loved.  Which was help kids navigate their world and explore career opportunities available to them.

Family Information:

I am divorced, from a very short marriage, 1986-1988.  I have one son, Evan who is married with 2 kids of his own, he and his wife, Kat, have been married since 2007.  My grand kids are Aurora and Zane, and they live in Bartow, Florida. I live with my mother, Dr. Pat Nickell,  and two very spoiled cats named Persia and Nixon, and a dog named Copper.  My father, Melvin Nickell and my brother, Kelly live and work in the Lubbock area.  They visit often, and I am lucky to have them all in my life.
