As the third-largest school district in Texas and the largest employer in Northwest Harris County, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District impacts the lives of far more than the 115,000 students and thousands of teachers, employees and administrators across 88 elementary, middle and high school campuses and special program facilities that study and work within our walls.

Today, we highlight Keith Nix, ninth-grade biology teacher and cross country and soccer coach at Cypress Park High School. Nix was also the school’s 2016-2017 Spotlight Teacher.

How long have you lived/worked in Cypress-Fairbanks?

Four years.

Why are you so passionate about being a part of the Cypress-Fairbanks community?

Cy-Fair is a very student-centered school district that you don’t see in every district. I am a coach so have been in several districts and Cy-Fair is solely focused on its students! I am given the flexibility to teach to the style of the students, which helps me as a teacher.

How has Cypress-Fairbanks ISD impacted you, your family or your business?

When I got to Cy-Fair I had been a classroom teacher in other districts, but was mainly a PE teacher. So this was my first high school classroom teaching position, and when I got here I found nothing but support. I was supported in my teaching, and was even honored to be asked to help conduct a professional development seminar the first year I was in the district! But the support is the important thing. They hire the best teachers and then find a way to support them and give them what they need!

What piece of advice would you like to give to Cypress-Fairbanks ISD students?

Soak up every bit of knowledge and experience you can while you have the chance here is Cy-Fair. You are only in school once, and it is important to be a student and a kid and have fun. But if you don’t learn from the leaders, educators, administrators and other students you really have done yourself a disservice. So many good people in and around this district, learn and gain as much as you can while you are here!

What’s your favorite thing to do, see, eat or experience in our community?

The community atmosphere is the best thing you see. Its not just about the sport you play, or extra curricular club you are in. Everyone is supportive. You see football players at kickball tournaments to raise money for an organization. You will see the student body president waiving flags on the sideline with their face painted. The atmosphere is amazing and its mostly done by the students!

Business:

Real Estate — Better Homes and Gardens, The Lippincott Team

How long have you lived/worked in Cypress-Fairbanks?

14 years.

Why are you so passionate about being a part of the Cypress-Fairbanks community?

Cy-Fair is an amazing place to work and also raise a family. The reason we moved here was because of the strong reputation of the school district. It is so important to live in a thriving and safe environment. The real estate values stay strong and the community continues to grow and prosper.

How has Cypress-Fairbanks ISD impacted you, your family or your business?

I am a previous teacher of 16 years. I taught seven of those years in Cy-Fair so I experienced our great district as an employee. I have lived here for 14 years and my two children are very involved in their Cy-Fair schools, so I also have experience as a parent in Cy-Fair and I love these experiences.

Being a parent and a teacher are the two things that led to my success as a realtor here. When I earned my real estate license I knew there would be no better place to sell homes than in my own neighborhood. It was easy to sell homes here because I could personally relate to my buyers and share the good reasons to live in Cy-Fair.

What piece of advice would you like to give to Cypress-Fairbanks ISD students?

Get involved! There are so many different opportunities out there to take advantage of. Enjoy your teachers and school. Give 110 percent at everything you do so that you can look in the mirror and be proud of yourself. Also, I would tell them to make good friends and develop strong relationships.

What’s your favorite thing to do, see, eat or experience in our community?

I love being involved in our school and community events such as the Superintendent’s Fun Run. Friday Night Lights are my family’s favorite events. We also enjoy trying all of the new restaurants in our growing area.
