About the Teacher/Welcome Msg


Welcome to my website.  This is my 15th year to teach Kindergarten. This is my 3rd year at DCPS.  I graduated from The University of Mississippi with a bachelors in Elementary Education and a concentration in English and History.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Lee Kicker, for 13 years. We have a sweet little red head named Libby. We also have a baby boy named Ryan.  My assistant is Heather Hughbanks. This is our 1st year to work together.  She is wonderful and I am very blessed to have her.  We love teaching your children, and we are looking forward to having a wonderful year.  If you have any questions, please e-mail me, write me a note, or contact me on remind.
