Nichols News & Events

For Faculty Friday this week, we're featuring a new member of Nichols School's faculty....Dr. Daniel Bassin, Upper School Orchestra teacher! Get to know Dr. Bassin as we ask him some musical questions.

On this Faculty Friday we are featuring Mrs. Deb Howe, Middle School English teacher! Mrs. Howe reveals her hidden talent, which fictional character she would like to meet in real life, and why she loves Nichols.

"Our panel of speakers offered our 7th graders the opportunity to hear intensely personal narratives. Students also had the opportunity to ask questions to gain an even more intimate understanding of the challenges and ultimately the successes of the speakers' journeys."
