My name is Laura Hicks. This will be my 22nd year teaching. I taught 5th grade at DPE for 16 years. Prior to that, I taught math for 6 years at Bonnette Junior High. I love teaching math and science and seeing my students' faces light up when they make connections with their everyday lives.
I grew up in Deer Park and went to DPE, DPJH, and DPHS. I have 1 brother, 2 sisters, and 2 sisters-in-law plus their families (11 nieces and nephews). They all grew up and still live in Deer Park. In fact, I currently have 4 nephews at DPE. Fun fact, my sister (Amanda Nunn) is our DPE School Nurse. I'm involved in city politics and am a member of a few committees. I love this town and DPE!
My husband is Jerry Hicks. We graduated together from Deer Park High School. We have 2 daughters. Mallory is a junior at Texas A&M. She is studying Environmental Science. She also works at HEB so you may recognize her. Layton is a senior at DPHS. She loves spending time with all of her cousins and friends so you may see her at the ball fields. We love camping, hiking, and floating the river. Also, I can't forget to mention our 2 cockapoos, Barkley and Boots. They are twin brothers and are partners in crime. :)
I am looking forward to a new year full of adventures and learning more about the students that I have the privilege to teach. This year is going to be AMAZING!!!!!
