Miss Whitney Nichols

My name is Whitney Nichols and I am a fifth grade ELA and Social Studies teacher at Hibbett Intermediate School. I am originally from Town Creek, Alabama and I currently reside in Florence. I attended the University of North Alabama and graduated with an Bachelor's in Elementary Education with a P-3 Certification. Since graduation in 2013, I have received a Master's and Education Specalist Degree in Elementary Education from UNA. 

I taught one year of Pre-K at W.C. Handy School before coming to Hibbett in 2014. I have taught Reading and ELA, and recently took on Social Studies in 2020. I enjoy traveling to new places, reading a great novel, and trying out new recipes. I am engaged to be married in December 2021, and will change my name to Mrs. Rhodes. I love to volunteer at the Shoals Dream Center Academy and to support our students in extracurricular sports, clubs, and other endeavors. We are looking forward to a great year at HIS!
