Thomas Jefferson

High School | Home of the Spartans

Matt Nicolo
Business Teacher




This will be my 15th year at Thomas Jefferson and I plan on being a Spartan for life. A lot has changed for me in the past year, starting with getting married to my beautiful wife Brittany, who I refer to as my "High School Sweetheart" (Formerly Ms. Penn) whom I met right here at Thomas Jefferson! I am the DECA Advisor, and just some fun knowledge, there have only been three (3) total DECA Advisors in the history of TJ (Jim Tierney, Tim McNerney and myself). Over the past 15 years we have had over 350 DECA Qualifiers for the State Conference and more than 15 ICDC (International Career and development Conference) Qualifiers. TJ DECA is "The Standard By Which Others Are Measured" and we live that standard every day in the classroom and community.
