Robert Flaherty, Principal/Director

Welcome to Nichols Elementary School! I am thrilled and honored to be the Principal. I was part of the teaching staff who opened Nichols in 2002 and work hard to continue our great traditions and build on our successes. I am constantly amazed and inspired by our highly qualified educators, dedicated parents, and fabulous students!

I have experience teaching students from Kindergarten through fifth grade in both special education and general education. I will work with students, staff members and the school community to ensure our students are well prepared to “Navigate the Future!”

At Nichols we will continue to challenge our students and build future leaders. Students will gain 21st Century skills through discourse, collaboration, creativity and through the development of critical thinking skills. Students will use technology in meaningful and productive ways to expand their knowledge.

We continue to expand our implementation of the Leader In Me program. Students will lead and shine as they take on more responsibilities in classrooms and at school. They will play significant roles in organizing and running school wide events, and with school clubs and activities. When students take on leadership roles they develop a sense of purpose and drive that can lead to increased academic achievement and provide valuable life skills.

I look forward to working as a team to ensure our students succeed. Working together we can make great things happen!
