Hello! My name is Whitney Nichols. This is my fourth year to teach Kindergarten and my second year at BCES! I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten and watching young minds grown and learn each day! Prior to coming to BCES, I taught for 2 years at Lowes Elementary School in Graves County. I am 2010 graduate of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY and a 2006 graduate of Ballard Memorial High School. Ballard County is home to me and I could not be more excited to be back in my hometown teaching at the elementary school that I attended as a child . This is a dream come true! My husband Dylan and I have a bassett hound puppy named Jodie. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, run and read. I love to cheer on my Ballad Bombers, Kentucky Wildcats and St. Louis Cardinals.
