Welcome to my school page! My name is Jamie Holifield and I teach Global History and American History here at Nicolet. I started teaching at a public charter school in the city of Milwaukee in 2014 and started here at Nicolet in 2016.
I am a Nicolet alum (Class of '03) and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Sociology from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. While at DePaul University, I participated in the honors program and was a varsity D1 athlete all four years on the DePaul Track and Field team for shot put, discus, and hammer throw. I also completed both my Masters of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction and my Post-Baccalaureate in Social Studies education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, graduating in 2014 as a member of Pi Lambda Theta education honors society.
At Nicolet, I am also the advisor for Black Student Union and am an assistant coach for the Nicolet Track and Field team as a shot put and discus coach.
American History: Classroom expectations and syllabus
Global History: Classroom expectations
Students, if you are absent, you will find handouts in the folder organizer next to the classroom door. I will also provide handouts and assignments missed electronically via Canvas. Please see your class syllabus for information and for grading policies on make up assignments, assessments, and class work.
Parents, please check with your students (US History) or email me for access to Google Classroom (Global History). All work is typically posted within 2-3 days in Skyward.
My policy aligns with Nicolet's policy on tardies outlined within the student handbook
I am available to offer extra help during 4th hour resource period and by appointment any day except for Wednesday's after school. Please schedule ahead of time since I do periodically have meetings, have to attend events, or have coaching responsibilities after school.
