Jessica Nickless Selected For The University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award


Jessica Nickless, English teacher, has been selected for the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Award. This distinguished award has existed for more than three decades.

Each year first-year students are invited to nominate an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them along the path toward intellectual growth.  Hundreds of letters are received by students, inspired by teachers who have changed the course of their lives, who taught them to re-imagine texts, to delve deeper into problem-solving, and to think beyond the borders of the classroom in the pursuit of their own education.
