My name is Kathleen Hicks and I am the Reading Teacher for Skyway, working with students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. This is my 18th year in the Coeur d'Alene School District. Last year I taught a morning session of kindergarten. Prior to that, I worked in Title reading programs, 12 years at Skyway and 5 years at Hayden Kinder Center. I can’t wait to share my passion for reading with our youngest learners and hope to instill a love of reading in all of my students.
I am originally from Scottsdale, Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University. We moved to Coeur d’Alene 18 years ago and fell in love with it’s beauty. My husband and I are the proud parents of 2 sons, both University of Idaho graduates. We have always been a hockey family; both boys played and my husband still referees. We also love to hike as often as possible.
