Mrs. Heather Nichols

     My name is Heather Cavender Nichols. This is my 22nd year of teaching. and my second year at Samson Elementary.  I am so excited to be teaching Pre-K this year!

     When I'm not teaching or doing school related work, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I have been happily married for twenty-eight years to my high school sweetheart, Shannon Nichols.  Shannon is the Webmaster/Programmer for the STARS office at Troy University.  We have been blessed with four amazing children.  Our oldest child, James, is twenty-five years old.  He recently earned his Master's Degree in Mathematics and lives in Tallahassee, Florida.  Andrea is twenty-three, and is in Pharmacy school at  Auburn University.  Matthew is a seventeen-year old Senior at Daleville High School.  He enjoys playing the trumpet for the Pride of the South, and is our family clown.  Our baby girl, Malorie is eleven years old.  She is in the sixth grade at Daleville Middle School.  Malorie is very creative.  She enjoys art and gymnastics.
