Reyherme hired as new Winters High School principal

Express editor
Winters High School students will start a brand new year on Aug. 10 with a brand new principal. Nicole Reyherme’s first day on the job was Monday, Aug. 18, and so far, she’s enthused about both the campus and the community.
“I’m really excited to be here and get to work with this community, and to get to hang out at some of the events in the community — now I have a good reason to go and be part of that,” says Reyherme, adding, “I’ve heard they have really good food at the Buckhorn” — something she’s looking forward to finding out for herself.
So far, with one day at her new job under her belt before stopping by the Express office, she says her reception in Winters has been “very welcoming.”
Her most recent position was serving as assistant principal at Rodriguez High School in Fairfield for two years. Prior to that, she held an assistant principal position in Walnut Creek after teaching 9-12th grade English at California High School in San Ramon.
Reyherme holds a bachelor’s degree in English from UC Davis, a teaching credential from the Fortune School of Education, a master’s degree in administration of justices and security from the University of Phoenix and an administrative credential from Cal State East Bay.
She says she “heard a lot of really good things about the community and the school” before applying for the job, and says, “I feel like I can help make a difference working at the high school. I love education and I love increasing the opportunities that students have, whether going the technical route or exploring options at junior college or going on to higher education.” . . .
