CSM Nuells is a very dedicated and hardworking teacher. The relationships he gets to form with his students and being able to watch them grow and mentally develop throughout their years is one of the many things he loves about teaching at Pleasanton High School.

He is also a graduate of the United States Army Sergeants Major Academy, where he served 30 years before retiring in 2020.
