Deb Nichols

My name is Deb Nichols and I work as a mathematics aide at CASMAN Academy.  I am a retired high school math teacher who loves kids and teaching so much, I "un-retired".  I believe students can understand most math problems if they are presented to them practically and at the students' pace.

I have two adult daughters, Jessica and Kelley, husband, Bill, a sweet little Shih Tzu, Wiilow, and a cat named Phoebe. I love to snowmobile and ride quads, fish, read, travel and solve math problems!
