My name is Keisha Nichols and I am an Assistant Professor of Industrial Technology here at PDCCC. I graduated from Virginia State University, in Petersburg, VA with a B.S. degree in Industrial Technology and a M.Ed. degree in Career and Technical Education. After graduation, I worked for the Department of Transportation as a Highway Inspector Trainee in Prince George County, VA. I later accepted the position as a Technology Education Teacher at Hopewell High School in Hopewell, VA. At HHS, I was also the Coordinator of the Engineering Technology Program in conjunction with John Tyler Community College, Trade & Industry Department Head and Technology Student Association Advisor.
Currently I teach Principles of Technology, Materials & Processing, Instrumentation, Team Concepts, Fluid Mechanics, Safety, and Developmental Math. I love to see the light bulb come on when a student finally grasps a concept. I incorporate this proverb into my daily teaching: Tell me, I’ll forget- Show me, I’ll remember- Involve me, I’ll Understand.”
