  • Graduating seniors visit kindergarten teacher

    Twelve years ago, W.A. Bess Elementary School kindergarten teacher Jill Nichols was honored as the Gaston County Schools Teacher of the Year. This year, the students from that class are graduating, and Nichols is retiring after a 30-year career in teaching. The students she first taught as 5- and 6-year-olds reunited at W.A. Bess Elementary one recent morning, where they visited with Nichols and reminisced about their time together, recreated their class yearbook photo and described how their journey to graduation began on the learning rug in Nichols’ classroom.
