Welcome to Mrs. Nichols' English II and English II Pre-AP class website! I am so pleased to return to VHS for my fourth year of teaching, and I cannot wait to spend another year with my awesome students. I am truly convinced that I have the best students in Texas, and I consider myself a blessed teacher to be at such a wonderful school. 
About me: I love cats, but I don't have one because I don't want the responsibility. I love to run, but I am really bad at it. I love to bake treats and make everything GIANT-sized (hence the need for running). I love music and often dream of my glory days in college when I was cool and was in a band.  I am badly addicted to coffee, I am the third of nine children, and I graduated from Baylor. (Sic 'em!) I met my husband of two years at a church dinner where he got my number in front of about thirty people and invited me to go bowling with him.
