Humans of Stockbridge: The start of a new beginning

Former Texas drill team member turns to teaching
Nicole Wadkins
Abby Nicholson tests out a future lab project the students will work on to learn about gas laws.

Before venturing to Stockbridge to teach chemistry, Abby Nicholson lived in a big town in Texas. This year is her first year teaching in the Stockbridge school district. 

Nicholson graduated from John H. Guyer High School in Denton, Texas and then went to Albanese Christian University to pursue a degree in chemistry. Her favorite memory was being a part of her high school’s drill team and making lifelong friends in her college sorority. 

Nicholson is commonly known in the school district as the “spirit jug leader,” or our most spirited teacher, and expressed that she got the spirit from her parents who encouraged her to attend school events and find passion within them. 

My passion for football and my dance team allowed my spirited personality to come out. Within my role as spirit leader of my drill team, it was my job to be energetic,” Nicholson said, “I wasn’t afraid to be loud and embarrass myself a little in order to get people excited about the event. I loved my school and I wanted my community to know how much it deserved to be loved.” 

In addition, Nicholson believes the spirit comes from a foundation of traditions and a strong community. 

Nicholson has enjoyed her time here and getting to know all of her students. She has also enjoyed teaching chemistry for the first time and going to extracurricular events. 

“I am looking forward to seeing how my students continue to grow as people and students within this final quarter of the year,” Nicholson said. “I am proud of each and every one of them.” She is a great fit for our district and brings all of her students happiness and success.
