Mr. Ken Nicholson
This is my 11th year to teach at Wylie High School! I have been teaching for 28 years. Welding has become my passion and I thoroughly enjoy teaching others how to weld. When I meet people and they find out what I do, 9 out of 10 people say, "I wish I knew how to weld!" I hope if you are in my classes this year, you realize what a great opportunity you have. You might not realize it now, but my hope is that you won't be 10-20 years down the line wishing you had taken advantage of this free opportunity. You never know how this skill might come in handy for a future career or just a fun hobby!!
I have a beautiful wife, Julie, to whom I have been married to for 31 years. She is a 6th grade teacher at Davis Intermediate School. We have 3 grown children. Our olderst, Kyle, is married to a WHS grad, Lauren Tarver. They have a daughter, Hannah, and live in Lindale, TX. Our middle child, Jolie, is a WEHS grad and is married to another WEHS grade, Brent Booth. They have a son, Landon, and live in Wylie. Our baby girl, Kendra, is a graduate of WHS and is married to a WHS graduate, Andrew Wesley. They have a son, Preston, and are expecting a second child in February. They live in Germany while Andrew is serving in the US Air Force. We love being grandparents!!
We live on our family farm in Parker on Parker Rd. If you have gone to Plano, from Wylie, using Parker Rd, you have driven past our home.
I look forward to having a great year with you! #ridingforthebrand
