Mr. James Nicholas joins the Midlo Theatre Department.

Mr. James Nicholas, the newest edition to theater, joins Midlo legend, Mrs. Katherine Baugher. His last project he’d done was building the set of a comic con. He’d never taught as a full time teacher before now, but has taught seminars. His passion for his job can clearly be seen.

What do you love most about what you do?

I like that I have an opportunity to come and improve the resources these kids work with and introduce new things to the curriculum.

Do you have any secret talents you would like to share?

I like to play music. I went to college for jazz guitar.

Who do you look up to, and did they affect your decision for this job? If so, how?

My high school theater teachers got me wanting to teach theater when I was in high school.

If you could say anything to your students, what would it be?

Be safe and have fun in my class. Know that I hate sitting. I hate the fact that students have to sit for a long time in school. I like to keep things active.

Welcome to Midlo, Mr. Nicholas!
