Mr. Gregory Nestle
I would like to thank you for this opportunity to serve you at Howard Norman Elementary and I look forward to this adventure. We have assembled a great staff to serve you and your children at HNES. A little about me, I am married with two children, Jasmine who is a 9th grader at Hutto High school and Zachary who will be at HNES in the first grade. My wife Dana, who I have been married to for 17 years works at Hutto High School as the Fine Arts Secretary. We love being a part of the Hippo Nation!
I have taught at Nadine Johnson Elementary, Farley Middle School and I served as the Assistant Principal at Hutto High School. My time with the Hippo Nation started as a Watch Dog and I absolutely fell in love with the Hippo Nation and serving children. There is no greater reward than serving you at Howard Norman Elementary.
My background prior to being a part of the Hippo Nation was 20 years in the Army. I lived and served all over the world and was truly blessed to be part of that organization. When it came time for me to retire I was looking for a new home for my family and when I came to Hutto I absolutely fell in love with our “little” town. I knew this was the place for me and my family
Howard Norman served his country during World War II and was part of the Army Air Corp. Howard Norman lost his life in the line of duty. I cannot think of a greater honor to serve this school in honor of him, his family and this community. Our theme this year is, “Building Upon a Legend” and I hope you will come to the school and volunteer. Help us build the greatest school. We would love to have you and I look forward to working with you and your children.
