Mrs. Nickie Ehlert » Welcome!


 Hello everyone!
I am excited to begin a new year at Willis High School! This is my second year here and my first year teaching Biology.  I graduated from Anderson-Shiro Jr./Sr. High School and then went on to Sam Houston State University. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Wildlife Ecology. I'm very excited to meet everyone and cannot wait to get started!
Biology can be a rigorous course, but I am here to help facilitate learning and will answer as many questions as you have! The best way to reach me is by email, which you can find on the right side of the page.
