• Hello, Sixth Grade Families! 

    I am so excited to be joining the Cheatham family this year!

    My name is Kim Hicks, and I am a native North Texan. I grew up right down the road in Plano and graduated from Plano Senior High School. After high school, I attended the University of Arkansas and the University of North Texas, where I graduated with my BA in English Literature. My father and I always joke about the fact that I studied about six different majors including architecture, business, nursing, and digital art before falling in love with literature and language. With all of those classes, I ended up learning about so many different things. One of my most passionate beliefs about education is the idea that we are all life-long learners. I believe that it is so important to instill a love of learning in people, children and adults alike. 

    For the past nine years, I have been teaching in Plano ISD. I have taught 7th-10th grade students reading, writing, study skills, journalism, and student leadership through the PAL program. I have loved all of the subjects that I have taught, and I am so excited to bring that knowledge with me to help prepare your amazing sixth graders with the tools and confidence they need to succeed at the secondary level. 

    One random fact about myself is that each day before school, I wake up and tutor Chinese students learning English on a digital platform. This has been an amazing experience, and I love sharing all of the different cultural pieces that my students teach me in class. Your students are sure to hear about my adventures throughout the year!

    When I am not at school, I can be found chasing after my very busy four-year-old son, exploring nature in local creeks and parks, or battling my husband of five years in a grueling game of Mario Kart on the original N64 system that we have managed to keep alive for over 25 years. 

    I can't wait to meet you all!
