Mrs. April Nichols

I am so excited to be starting my second year as a Gulledge Gator!  This is my 15th year teaching.  I graduated from Baylor University where I received my degree in Elementary Education.  I earned my Masters Degree from The University of North Texas in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Reading and Writing.  I earned my Reading Specialist certification after finishing up my Masters Degree.  I have taught at 4 different schools during my career.  I taught at Spring Valley Elementary in Midway ISD, McCall Elementary in Plano, Barron Elementary in Plano, and now I am happy to be at Gulledge.  I spent time as a 4th grade teacher, team leader, a reading and intervention specialist, and now I am loving teaching 3rd grade.  My love for teaching and helping students reach their highest potential grows with each year I spend as an educator.  

I live in McKinney with my husband Adam and new baby, Nash.  In my spare time, I love spending time with my family. I also love to dance, sing, craft, and watch movies! 

I am excited for another amazing year at Gulledge!
