Jessica Nichols serves the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as an Education Consultant on the Special Education Team. Her work supports students with social and emotional needs including students with autism and students with emotional behavioral disabilities. Jess has extensive experience promoting positive outcomes for students with IEPs as a teacher, coach, consultant and trainer. She has a passion for early intervention and meaningful family engagement and is committed to promoting a deeper understanding of the myriad of factors impacting youth in Wisconsin’s public schools. She is a firm believer that, as Dr. Ross Greene says, “Kids Do Well If They Can,” and that we as educators have the capacity and influence to support all learners as they achieve their dreams. When not supporting teachers and students, Jess spends time with her family who love all things outdoors including mountain biking, boating, kayaking, hiking and skiing. At the end of the day she loves to unwind fireside with a good book.
