• Odyssey  
    A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.
    John Steinbeck

    Hello!  Welcome to my page, I am Jim Nixon, and I have been teaching at Alhambra High School for twelve years.  I am a co-teacher in Freshman and Sophomore English classes. 
    I am fortunate this year to be able to read many of the great authors from around the world.  Students and I will explore various readings and complete assignments and projects to further your child's interest in short stories and novels.
    Please feel free to contact me with any comments or concerns that you may have.  You can reach me at nixon@phoenixunion.org.
