Putting My Experience to Work
Hello Aspen and Snowmass,
My name is Jonathan Nickell, and I am running for the Aspen Board of Education. I would like to ask for your support and your vote.
I am running because I have the skills and experience to help the Aspen School District (ASD) successfully manage this period of transition. Let's put ASD on track to not only become the best school district in Colorado for whole child education but to fulfill our potential of becoming one of the best school districts in the country.
I grew up in a small Colorado ski town, graduated from Nederland High School and attended the Colorado School of Mines. There I met my wife, Paula. We have lived in Aspen since 2013, and our three children, Matilda, Thomas and Juliana, have attended or are currently enrolled in Aspen High School. You can learn more about me and my family here.
To ensure a successful transition, I will focus on three things:
I have the experience to ensure that we have the correct visionary leadership in the superintendent position. Having an aspirational leader who will promote a positive climate and unite our community around a common vision and priorities is the key to the future success of our schools.
I am committed to supporting our teachers. Teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of education. Working to support, retain, attract and develop the best teachers for our schools is key.
I will make a positive impact by continuing to improve the Board of Education’s transparency and effectiveness.
Thank you for your support and your vote.
