VUHS alum selected for Addison Northwest post

Violet Nichols

VERGENNES — A Vergennes Union High School graduate has been hired as the new Addison Northwest School District Director of Learning and Technology.
Violet Nichols will take over the position on July 1 after being chosen from what ANSWD Superintendent Sheila Soule called in a press release a “highly competitive applicant pool,” including six finalists chosen for interviews.
A hiring team including Soule, two ANWSD principals, and three other district officials made the final decision on March 18, Soule said.
Nichols has most recently worked as the Mathematics Instructional Coach in the Mount Abraham Unified School District and as a Principal Intern at the Monkton Central School. She has also worked as an instructor in the Reach Leadership and STEAM Academy in Riverside, Calif., and as a classroom teacher in the Lewiston Public Schools in Maine.
Nichols is a Vermont native who grew up in Addison County attending Vergennes-area schools and graduating from VUHS in 2004. She has a master’s degree in education, and will complete a second master’s in Educational Leadership in June. She has taught, coached, and been an educational leader in a variety of settings including STEM and Turnaround schools.
“Violet’s energy and enthusiasm for the position is extremely evident. We will greatly benefit from her strong facilitation skills and her capacity to lead through collaboration, communication and community partnerships so as to improve educational outcomes for our students,” Soule said. “I look forward to welcoming her on our team.”
