Taylor Nichols

Principal, IDEA Rundberg College Prep

With a BA in History from Princeton University and a Master’s in Educational Leadership, Teachers College – Columbia University, Taylor Nichols knows children are not currently getting the education they deserve and strives to change this. This is especially true for students of lesser means which in Austin, Texas, means east of the I-35 freeway. Taylor is committed to IDEA because the schools have proven that the status quo does not have to persist. He is proud to work for an organization that maintains high expectations for students and is changing the trajectory of their lives.
