About Mrs. Hicks
I have been blessed to be a Special Education Teacher for 29 years in Pickens County. I graduated from North Georgia College in Dahlonega, Georgia, originally with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting. After 7 1/2 years as an accountant with companies in real estate development, I went back to North Georgia College to follow my original dream of becoming a "teacher." I earned a Masters of Education degree in Special Education (Learning Disabilities). After completing my student teaching requirements at Jasper Elementary School, I was hired as a special education teacher for the next school year. I have been fortunate to teach at Jasper Elementary School (3 years), Pickens High School (12 years), Hill City Elementary(10 years), Harmony Elementary (1 year), Jasper Middle School (1 year), Pickens County Middle School (2 year) and have now returned back to Pickens High School. I earned my Specialist degree from Piedmont College in July, 2005. In 2007, I was honored to be Hill City Elementary School's Teacher of the Year.
