Nicole Eshelman’s goal for her students is to take learning from inside the classroom to the real world. As the English 9 teacher for the Center for Information Technology, her job is twofold: infuse the world of technology into the ninth grade curriculum while immersing new Warriors into the culture of Matoaca High and our specialty center. Nicole’s high energy and welcoming demeanor help build community for students who, in many cases, have never met until their freshman year. As yearbook adviser, Nicole tirelessly strives alongside students to create an award-winning product year after year. Her social media outreach spreads the word about what’s happening at Matoaca High to keep the students, parents and community connected.
