Mr. Nix began teaching in 1989 after graduating from Western New Mexico University with high honors and a double major in Mathematics and Secondary Education. He has taught math classes ranging from Consumer Math to AP Calculus and Physics. In 1997, after obtaining his Master’s Degree in Educational Management and Development with high honors from New Mexico State University, and relocating to Utah, he spent the next 17 years in school administration, where he had the opportunity to select and supervise some of the best teachers in the state. Over his long career he has educated many thousands of children. Mr. Nix is ecstatic about continuing to teach while serving as an instructional leader. He is anxious to share the beauty of mathematics with the students. “In my classroom, failure is not an option. Success is the ONLY option. Students learn in an intentionally inviting, rigorous, and positive environment. Every leader is a teacher. Every teacher is a leader. Every student is a success.” In his off time, Mr. Nix runs, plays guitar and spoils his grandchildren. He is currently training to qualify for the Boston Marathon in 2018. To achieve that goal, he needs to shave 30 minutes from his best marathon time to date. He is also a devoted family man, married to Lisa for 37 years with three children and four grandchildren who call him Pawpaw!
