Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies
Welcome to Nichols Elementary! I am your Academic Behavior Strategist. I attended elementary school in Clinton, MS and then moved to Waco, TX and finished 7th-12th grade. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas State University. Both of my parents, Tom and Cindy Gladney, work in the Biloxi Public Schools district. My husband, Brad Shonk, has been a 4th grade teacher for years and is now a math coach for the Biloxi Upper Elementary. I am a huge New Orleans Saints fan during football season and love my Texas Rangers during baseball season. Pizza is my favorite food and my husband and I love to seek out the local pizzeria anywhere we travel. I chose education because it runs in my blood. I have a huge heart for children and the empowerment that a great education can have in their lives. School should be filled with learning, but surrounded by fun and excitement within the learning.
