Nulik is known for being student-centered and teacher-friendly.
“He is a master at developing positive relationships with students and has been able to help many students through difficult behaviors and struggles because of the connections he has made,” part of his nomination read.
Another nominator credited Nulik’s dedication for making the school a better place, tacking behaviors and In-School Suspension procedures that led to positive impacts on student behaviors.
“He brings a tenacity to the position through which he attacks problems with the intention of making situations better for students and staff. He also brings that same approach to learning new things that will not only help him, but also support student learning. I am very thankful to have Chad on the USD 373 administrative staff. He is very deserving of this award,” superintendent Fred Van Ranken said.
Congratulations to Mr. Nulik!
