Mr. Nicholas Wester
I was born in Waterloo, Iowa in 1980, moving to Texas when I was in the second grade. Most of my life has been in North Texas, though my heart never quite left the Midwest. After graduating from Plano East Senior High School I completed both my Bachelor’s in Historical Studies and my Master’s of Political Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. My personal interests have always revolved around historical and modern political issues and events which makes teaching Social Studies less of a job and more of a hobby I am lucky enough to be paid to do. I first obtained my certification for Social Studies 4-8 in 2006 and I spent the previous seven school years teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies at Stockard Middle School in Dallas ISD. I have been a member of this community since 2013 and I am excited to begin contributing to the neighborhood in which I live.
Starting in the 2018-2019 school year I will be teaching Technology Applications, LEGO and VEX Robotics and Gateway to Technology. I am excited to be working with kids on these project-based courses that help prepare them for the future and push them to use critical thinking skills to solve real issues.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I encourage communication and feedback!
