Nancy Schick

Nancy Schick is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Michigan State University and earned her master’s degree at the University of Pittsburgh. She taught for over thirty-five  years at public high schools in Pennsylvania, Maryland, California (where she was a math teacher), Virginia, and New Mexico. She and her husband, Mike, live in Los Alamos, NM, where she taught AP U.S. History and AP
European History at Los Alamos High School.  If all goes according to plan, they will move to Oregon before the tulips appear in the spring.  For many years Nancy has been a College Board consultant and a reader, table leader, and exam leader at the annual AP U. S. History reading. Nancy served on the AP United States History Test Development Committee for four years.

Nancy’s most treasured teaching experience has been teaching AP European History. This is a course that is so very rich in its focus, not only on political and diplomatic history, but also on art, literature, philosophy, and far more. It is a course that not only enriches, but transforms, students’ lives. It extends students’ intellectual and aesthetic boundaries far beyond the study of the rise and fall of European nations. It is both a joy and a challenge to teach.

Nancy has received fellowships from Stanford University, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the U.S. Institute of Peace, and the Goethe Institute.  In 2003 she was a Fulbright-Hays scholar in Southeast Asia. She has been selected five times as a Presidential Scholar Distinguished Teacher and was the 2005 New Mexico Teacher of the Year. She has written several publications for teachers and is currently working on a U.S. history review and test-preparation guide for students. She travels as much as she can and in the new year plans to go to Iran, Eastern Europe, and Mongolia - where she looks forward to staying in a ger and riding a camel in the Gobi Desert.
