Ms. Karen Nickel

I LOVE TO TEACH! I LOVE SCIENCE! I LOVE PEARLAND HIGH SCHOOL!  I am a Canadian but I got to Texas as fast as I could. I teach Biology, Chemistry and Astronomy at the high school level and I've been doing it for 25 years now. It just keeps getting better and better! 

  •  It's Nickeltime! 

    Conference Time:   Period  3  9:05-9:54am

    Tutoring Times:   Tues. & Thurs. 3:00 - 3:30pm

    (Normally I am here for at least an hour after work on most days.  If you need a specific day, let me know ahead of time and I can probably stay.)  

    Any changes will be posted on my door.

    COVID-19 Changes:  Office Hours:  For the first few weeks of school, we will have all remote learning on Friday.  I will be available for help throughout Friday.  If anyone needs some tutoring, we can do that through a TEAMS meeting. Students can email me from my webpage here, or through Skyward or Canvas.  They can also send me a Remind text.

    All safety measures must be strictly followed, including following the seating plan to allow for distancing, wearing a mask or facial covering at all times and frequently washing hands or using hand sanitizer.


    Remind Service for ASTRONOMY:

    Send a text to the number 81010 and in the body of the text put @6k48gf

    Remind Service for CHEMISTRY:

    Send a text to the number 81010 and in the body of the text put @8ff2c6


    Parents please remember:  Check your child's grade regularly on Skyward. Students are highly advised to join my Remind service and parents are always welcome.  



    Important Notice:  All students should have the following items for success and should bring them to class EVERY day: 

    * charged laptop or tablet, charging cord AND extension cord in case of loss of power

    *pen, pencil, highlighter

    * eraser/whiteout tape

    * ruler

    *3-ring binder with lined paper (or spiral notebook or pocket folder)

    * a large, gallon size Ziploc bag for use with classroom calculator (or bring your own calculator)

     * your prescribed glasses or contacts so you can see and participate from any assigned seat in the classroom. 

    Students who come unprepared to class significantly reduce their chances for success in academic courses.  Please help your student appreciate the importance of being prepared!
