Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Ms. Bickerton and I am so glad to be spending another year here at Reed. I teach 4th Grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. I am originally from Sandy, Utah, and have since adopted Texas as my forever-home. I have two younger siblings and two sweet kitties, which you will hear all about as the year goes on! The most important things to me are my family, nature, children, and learning.
I began my college educaiton in Utah and later graduated from University of North Texas University with a degree in Childhood Education. I was lucky enough to complete my clinical teaching hours right here in Allen and land a career doing what I love immediately afterward, so I have become very accustomed to the Allen-Eagles-way! :) This year is going to be focused on growth and always striving for our personal best. I can’t wait to get started!
Below is a list of some of my favorite things:
Color: blue and green—earthy tones!
Candy: Reese’s, Midnight Milkyway, or anything sour!
Books: Harry Potter series and Because of Winn-Dixie
Animals: elephants and dolphins
Movies: Harry Potter series and Pursuit of Happyness (yes, the title is spelled with a ‘y’!)
Flowers: magnolias and peonies
Hobbies: reading, spending time in nature, and exercising
Gifts: Anything handmade, plants, coffee, gift cards (Amazon, Target, and Teachers Pay Teachers), or you could always donate to our classroom wishlist, linked down below!
