• 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. 

    This is my second year at Cheatham teaching sixth grade English and World Cultures. Prior to that, I 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. 

    I am not at school, I can be found spending time with my very busy five-year-old son and eight-week-old daughter, exploring nature in local creeks and parks, or battling my husband of six 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!
