Welcome to a new school year! My name is Jessica Hickerson, and I am very excited to have your child in English I this year. I am committed to giving your child the best English experience possible. We will certainly be working very hard to reach your student’s goals this school year.
To let you know a little bit about myself, this is my ninth year teaching overall and my eighth year teaching English I. I graduated from the University of Louisville with two Bachelor’s Degrees in English and Humanities. I also received my Master’s Degree in the Art of Teaching (grades 5-12) from the University of Louisville. I have taught in Indiana, Tennessee, and now in my home state of Kentucky. I have served as a Faculty Learning Leader and a District Common Core Standards Coach during the course of my career. While I have high expectations for myself, it is also my goal that every student obtain the skills necessary in English I to be highly successful in his/her future English courses and after graduation!
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns about your student’s progress in English I. You may reach me by email and I will do my very best to respond within 24 hours. I am also available by phone or through conferences. I am looking forward to a fantastic year rich with progress and development for your child in English I! While working together, we can ensure your child reaches his/her potential.
