Miss Nicole Vickerman

My name is Nicole Vickerman, and I am passionate about inspiring capable, compassionate, and curious global explorers.  As founding sponsor of the Junior World Affairs Council at Clark, I encourage students to become empowered to impact global affairs. I graduated from PESH in 1991 and started teaching at Clark in 1997.  I am the Department Chair and World Geography Team Leader at Clark High School in Plano ISD, and I am Clark’s representative on the district curriculum committee. I am the co-writer and a teacher of the World Geography course for Plano’s online eSchool, one of the first in the state.  In 2017 I was the first in PISD to earn National Geographic Educator Certification and was named a Grosvernor Teacher Fellow to the Arctic in 2019. I was awarded the National Council for Geographic Education Distinguished Teacher Award in 2009, the World Affairs Council International Educator of the Year in 2010, and the Texas Council for the Social Studies High School Teacher of the Year in 2013.  I earned the HEB Lifetime Achievement Award in 2020, which included a $25,000 prize for Clark.  I enjoy promoting geographic education as a member of the Dallas/Ft. Worth World Affairs Council Education Advisory Board, and my classes were filmed for the Grosvenor Department at Texas State’s Teaching with the Stars project.  I have visited more than 30 countries, many as part of competitive educational programs for teachers, and I encourage my students to pursue similar opportunities.
