Hello, my name is Micah Nicholson and I am a candidate for Natchitoches Parish School Board District 9. I have over 20 years’ experience in the field of education including serving for four years as the Principal of Marthaville Elementary and Junior High School. My other positions over the years include Principal of M.R. Weaver Elementary School and teaching positions at NSU Elementary Lab School, Lakeview Junior and Senior High School, Broadmoor Middle School, and Jena High School. I also had the opportunity to teach at NSU as an adjunct faculty member for five years. I come from a long line of educators with my father teaching for 47 years, my mother entering her 50th year of teaching, and my grandmother also teaching for over 40 years.
During my years as Principal at Marthaville School, we experienced consistent academic growth with a commitment to excellence and a focus on school community and culture. We made many improvements to the facilities including (but not limited to) upgraded hvac systems, lighting, multiple awnings/covered sidewalks, upgrades to the elementary building, new flooring in both gyms, and a new parking lot. The time and resources committed to improving our facilities are important and will continue to support the community and our students.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to serve the communities in district 9 as a member of the Natchitoches Parish School Board. I believe that my experience in education and especially as Principal of Marthaville School would be an asset to the board and could only help to ensure that district 9 continues to be supported on all issues. My promise is to always protect the interests of Marthaville School and to be an advocate for the community and school on all issues. I believe Marthaville School to be one of the best schools in the parish and would humbly ask for your vote on November 8th in support. Ballot #63.
