Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jessica Hicks
Hi, My name is Jessica Hicks. I grew up in Wicksburg, Alabama, where I attended Wicksburg High School. I graduated from Wicksburg in 2002. After graduation, I moved to Auburn, Alabama where I began my undergraduate study at Auburn University. I was undecided for my first couple of semesters at Auburn, but soon realized that my heart was in education. I had always desired to have a career that would allow me to make a difference in other people's lives. I believe that education is such a career.
After four years of study I graduated in 2006, Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I was hired that same spring for a fifth grade position at Rehobeth Elementary School. Much to my surprise I was later offered an opportunity to teach Kindergarten instead. With much excitement, I accepted this chance, I haven't regretted it since! I love teaching Kindergarten. It allows me a chance to see SO much growth in my students and is incredibly rewarding!
I am married to a wonderful man named Jamison. Jamison works as a civilian industrial engineer for Army Research Labs. We have been married since the fall of 2006. We are members at Harvest Church is Dothan, Alabama.
When not at school I can be found reading a good book, painting my finger nails, biking, or crocheting.
