Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kate Hicks
Welcome to 1st grade! I am very excited to be your child's first grade teacher. This will be my 10th year teaching and my 3rd year at Patriots STEM Elementary School. My husband and I have two girls that attend Patriots. Ava is in 4th grade and Aubrey is in 2nd grade. We also have two dogs. Tie is our 15 year old westie and Piper is our 5 year old border collie/lab mix. It can get pretty crazy in our house from time to time. I graduated from UNCC with my undergad and masters in elementary education. Teaching is truly a passion of mine and I can't wait to get to know your child and family.
Our classroom is a happy, positive environment where students want to come learn. I strive for us to connect and build relationships that feel more lke a family than just a classroom. I can't wait to start this learning adventure with your child and see how much they learn this year. Our classroom theme is "Happy Campers" and I look forward to us all learning together real soon!
