About Mr. Nichols.. I come from an educational family including grandparents who were teachers and principals, a mother who was a Kindergarten teacher for 40 years, and several friends who are teachers. Because I come from a strong educational family background, I appreciate the value of a good education. I always wanted to be a teacher and I love my job. I attended Sam Houston State University and majored in education. I began my teaching career ten years ago in Conroe ISD. I love history and truly believe it is a window into our past, present, and future. This is my sixth year at Cornerstone and I love contributing to its continual success!
