Mrs. Shelly Nickell

Hello! This is my 8th year as the Davis Intermediate Nurse. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the College of ST. Teresa in Winona, Minnesota in 1984. I have worked in many specialties over the years, but my favorite has always been pediatrics. I moved to Houston from Minnesota in 1986 and began working at MD Anderson in Pediatric/Adolescent Hematology/Oncology. I met and married my husband in Houston and we just celebrated our 25th anniversary. We have 4 children. All of them attended and graduated from Wylie.

I Love my job! I love the staff that I am blessed to work with! We all work as a team and our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students, their families and our staff. I really look forward to the kids every day. Watching them grow and mature over the 2 years they are here is amazing and wonderful to see. This year will be a little different, but we will get through. I will be monitoring and working with staff to see that all are safe, social distancing and wearing their masks.

Health Screenings are part of my job and they are state mandated. All 5th graders will have Vision, Hearing and Acanthosis Nigricans screenings done. All 5th grade girls will have scoliosis screens as well. If you take your child for a well-child visit, you can ask your doctor to do these and send me a note with results and they won’t need to be done at school. Screenings will begin around the 2nd week of school and will continue through the fall until all are completed. You will be notified if your child does not pass these screenings and require follow-up with your doctor. The state has mandated that screenings be done on remote learners as well. Plans for bringing your student in for screenings are in the works at this time. You will be notified.

Any time your child gets vaccinations, please send me a copy so that I can enter it into their skyward account.

I am here for you and your student! If you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you so much! We will have a great year!
