Mr. Francis Nichelson

¡Hola, soy Sr. Nichelson! I'm excited to start another school year and for the opportunity to bring the Spanish language and culture to our students in order to create global citizens. 

I came to teach Spanish after several years in a marketing career. In that industry I learned several key lessons. Primarily, the importance of being able to assist clients and colleagues in Spanish and to interact with others in a culturally appropriate manner. Now, that I’m here at Travis High School I’m proud to be able to work with students developing second language skills that will have applications in their daily lives.

The 2020-2021 school year will mark my fourth year at Travis, and the start of my eighth year teaching Spanish.  I look forward to having an outstanding year with students in Spanish levels 1&3.
