Mrs. Jill Nichols

Basic Info- I was born in upstate New York but grew up in FL.  I have several siblings and come from a military family.

Education– After high school, I joined the United States Air Force, serving in Texas and Illinois.

I began working on a nursing degree but realized it was not what I truly wanted to do. After moving to New Hampshire in 2008, I obtained my BS in Behavioral Science.

Work Experience– I spent my young adult life working in retail, and then after my military service, I spent several years in banking before moving to New Hampshire.  My first job in Woodsville was working with adults with developmental disabilities, which I did for almost 5 years.  In 2013, I became an Instructional Assistant at HCMS, working with 4th and 5th graders. I loved working with children and enjoyed my time there. I took time off to be a home provider for a young woman for five years and returned to education in 2019 at Woodsville High School as the JAG Career Specialist. This year will be my 5th year in this position.

Extra, Extra! My husband is Scott Nichols, a former Social Studies teacher and now the WHS Library Media Specialist and ELO Coordinator. We met in 2003 and have been married since 2006. We have two beautiful fur babies…. Elvis is our 7-year-old Lab/Springer Spaniel mix, and Hope is our 5-year-old Chocolate Lab. We love traveling, and our favorite vacation spot is Las Vegas. My dream is to go to Ireland someday.
