Nicolette (Nikki) Carrell Dennis holds a BA and MA in English from the University of Idaho, an Educational Specialists Certificate from the University of New Mexico, and is presently working on an Ed.D. from the University of Oklahoma. Ms. Dennis has worked in public education since 1983 as a teacher, activities director, assistant principal, principal and cluster leader.
As a school leader, Ms. Dennis has served as the leader of two elementary schools, one comprehensive high school, one career tech school, and two early college academies. Ms. Dennis vividly recalls the first time she entered her current school, Will Rogers College JH and HS. She said that she could feel the hair on her arms standing straight up because the architecture and school is eerily similar to Pocatello High School, the school she attended. Like her alma mater, Pocatello High, Ms. Dennis believes the “hallow architecture of Rogers is a beautiful testament to the past and a prodigious monument to the future.” She believes that this gorgeous schools, with its amazing history, is an awesome place to receive an education.
Ms. Dennis became a principal because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of teachers and students. She indicated that leaving the classroom was a difficult decision to leave the classroom, because of her love of teaching English; however, she realized that she could positively impact a school community by becoming a principal and therefore decided that this was the best way to make a difference for many people. Ms. Dennis loved being a teacher and being a principal. She note that the only difference between the two is that a teacher changes lives in the classroom and the principal does it in the larger context of a school. She feels fortunate that she feels blessed to be the principal of Will Rogers.
