Mrs. Nichole Murray

Greetings from The Bob.  This year promises to be an amazing year for the students and myself. It's my pleasure to work with the brightest and most dedicated students in the state...the students of Bob Jones High School. 

Patriot blood runs deep as I graduated from Brewer High School (The Patriots) in 1993 and set out to become a law student at the University of North Alabama. While I attended UNA, I marched in the band and found the love of my life, my drum major.  We married in 1994 then my husband joined the United States Marine Corps.  We left UNA and moved to Beaufort, South Carolina.  There I attended the University of South Carolina-Beaufort as a PreLaw major/English minor.  While living in South Carolina, I gained a love for the coast, antiques, Patriotic music, and Low Country Boil (Frogmore Stew). Our first child was born in 1997 and my life changed forever. In 1998, we moved back to Florence were I continued my education, changing my major to English Language Arts. In 2003, I received a B.S. degree in English Language Arts/Secondary Education and had our second child. While teaching full time and coaching JV cheerleaders at Wilson School, I worked on my Master's Degree.  In 2007, I received my Master's Degree in Education/English Language Arts and gave birth to our third child.  In 2012, I became a Bob Jones Patriot and began teaching at the best high school in the state with the most incredible group of teachers. This past year, I became a National Board Certified Teacher and joined an amazing group of individuals across the country dedicated to the education of our youth. I look forward to working with my students and helping them create lifelong learning goals. It's an exciting time to be a Bob Jones Patriot.
