My name is Laura Hicks. This will be my 23rd year teaching. After teaching 5th grade at DPE for 16 years, I have moved to the Math Interventionist position and teaching science to 2nd-5th on Winning Wednesdays. 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 3 nephews and 1 niece 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 senior at Texas A&M and is studying Environmental Science. Layton is starting her fist year of college. She loves spending time with all of her cousins and friends so you may see her at the ball fields. We love camping, hiking, kayaking 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!!!!!
