BIOGRAPHY
Dr. Nicksic, a native Oregonian, joined the TAMU Division of Health in 2015 after completing her doctorate in Health Behavior and Health Education from The University in Texas in Austin. With over ten years of experience as a public school classroom teacher in grades ranging from kindergarten through seventh, Dr. Nicksic is passionate about teaching and strives to provide students with meaningful learning experiences that facilitate critical thinking and application of content to real life. Her primary interest is classroom physical activity, which refers to student engagement in physical activity within the general education classroom as facilitated by the classroom teacher. Classroom physical activity, a mechanism for academic performance across all levels of education, is one component of the nationally-recognized Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program designed to improve the holistic health of school-aged youth. Dr. Nicksic's research focuses on the dissemination of evidence, resources, and materials to promote physical activity in the classroom. During her tenure at TAMU, Dr. Nicksic has expanded her research to include college students and professional development for collegiate faculty.
