• Hi, my name is Marla Nixon. I have been teaching Physical Education for 24 years in the Coeur d'Alene School District. I've been married for 33 years and have 2 sons and a cat. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy the outdoors snowskiing, reading, mountain biking, hiking, gardening and eating Doritos! :)
