Nick Linscott
Boys Boarding School Email Address

With more than fifteen years of service, Nick is our longest tenured staff member at Cherokee Creek. His background in science, biology, teaching, outdoor recreation, scouting and work with children have made him an excellent addition to the teaching staff at Cherokee Creek Boys School.

Born and raised in Athens, Ohio, Nick attended Ohio University where he received a B.S. in Environmental Biology and a B.S. Ed. Degree in Secondary Science. After graduation, he taught Junior High School Science and High School Biology at New Boston High School in New Boston, Ohio.

Nick then combined his teaching skills with his love for the outdoors as an instructor at The Nantahala Outdoor Center, working with their rafting and canoeing programs in South Carolina. He was a sought-after substitute teacher during the winters and still believes that there is no better preparation for any teacher than a few winters of substitute teaching!

“I came to Cherokee Creek because I wanted to be somewhere I could use my talents, education and diversity of experience to do profoundly important work. I’ve been here for more than ten years now and I still feel joy and pride in what we do. I am inspired by the courage with which our students face and overcome the challenges they face. I believe in the philosophical tenets of our program and especially appreciate both the professionalism and the fun-loving attitude of the staff.”

Nick has been recognized by the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) as Teacher of the Year.

Let me share a middle school story…

“Middle School was a difficult time for me, but I had the good fortune of having a home and family to which I could always return at the end of the day and know that I was loved and accepted no matter what. I was an active member in a great Boy Scout troop – Troop 53. We had a Scoutmaster who was the greatest influence on me outside of my family. There was also a core of good senior boy leadership to emulate and a group of peers who helped make our troop one of the strongest in our region for many years. I still stay in touch with several of those guys.”
