Mrs. Hicks has called Guardian her church home for the past 17 years. She has taught in various capacities since 1981-from 1st grade through high school. She was thrilled to come out of her very short retirement to start teaching two middle school math classes last year. This school year Mrs. Hicks will be teaching first grade with Mrs. MacKenzie, in addition to her math position. When she’s not in the classroom, Mrs. Hicks enjoys dog sitting her four grand dogs, and being a true-blue Michigan fan, having earned her teaching degree from the University of Michigan. She has been married to her husband, Dave, for the past thirty-five years. They have three adult children, a daughter-in-law and son-in-law, and two dachshund/basset hound mix twin sisters.
