In an effort to celebrate the incredible staff we have in our district and to make connections across our entire system, we wanted to highlight some of the phenomenal people who are making a difference in our schools and communities. Getting to Know Greece will be a monthly feature that will introduce you to Greece staff members serving in a variety of roles and responsibilities across the district. In each short vignette, you will hear about who the staff member is, what they do, their life's journey, and what motivates them on a daily basis.
Our latest installment features Emile Nicholson, a Physical Education Teacher at Phoenix Academy and a soccer coach at Arcadia. Emile has been a part of the Greece CSD for 21 years and has taught at all levels - elementary, middle school, and high school. He also student-taught right here in Greece and received a job offer from Greece right out of college. Emile enjoys his day-to-day interactions with students and says they are his motivation to be great. He wants his students to feel accomplished in his space and to have a positive experience so that they can put aside the difficult times they are going through as well as provide them with an avenue in the gym that helps students to let go of the trauma they face. Thank you Emile for being a great mentor and role model for staff and students and for your contributions to our Greece community!
