April Nichol

Hello, Buffalo Families! My name is April Nichol and I’m thrilled to say this will be my ninth year teaching SECOND GRADE here at Lone Oak. I love teaching and cannot see myself doing anything else. My degree is in Elementary Education from Texas A&M-Commerce. I have also obtained my certification in Special Education and ESL (English as a Second Language).


I have two children, of whom both are proud graduates of LOHS. My daughter Hanah, was married in March to Keon Cleary and she is currently pursuing her doctorate in Physical Therapy. My son Jack, married his LOHS sweetheart, Sarah Norman this July and he will graduate from Texas Christian University, with a Business Degree in Economics/Finance. I have a sweet dog, Coco and sweet kitty Marie, and one precious grandpuppy, Arya. Our family has grown and I love it!!! My children are my love, my life, and my passion.


I am looking forward to teaching your child this year and getting to know their individual interests. Every child has a different learning style. As their teacher, it will be my job to help them grow as a learner and a person of good character. I believe learning should be ACTIVE! When you walk into our classroom often times it will be loud, busy, and at times messy. My goal is to provide meaningful lessons and activities that will promote exploration and result in a deep understanding of academic content. 


Above all things, I believe in creating a classroom family where children work together, support one another, and believe in each other! It is going to be a fantastic year!
