My name is Nick Epstein and I am the Physical Education teacher at Dorsett Shoals Elementary School. I was born in Clarkesville, Tennessee and moved to the wonderful state of Georgia when I was very young. I grew up in Bowdon, Georgia and graduated from Bowdon High School. I then enrolled at the University of West Georgia where I graduated with a bachelor of science degree from their health and physical education program. I recently earned my Master's of Science Degree in Physical Education from the University of North Georgia. I am also currently teaching at the college level for Brewton Parker College in Newnan, GA. I love spending time with my wife Kerri who teaches 1st grade in Douglas County at Bill Arp Elementary and my dogs Herschel Walker and Champ Bailey. My hobbies include any sport ever invented, college football Saturdays, and any way possible to be active and play as I am still a kid at heart. This will be my fifth year at Dorsett Shoals and I am looking forward to another great year! Thank you for the opportunity to teach and get to know your children. I think they will all agree that we are having a great time in the gym! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a wonderful 2016-2017 school year!
