Hickey had always wanted to teach, but living overseas made it a challenge to complete her education. As a result, she entered the profession after raising her two sons, Paul and William.
This is Hickey's ninth year of teaching. She has primarily taught sixth-grade language arts and social studies in Columbia County.
"The team concept and the middle-school model that is used here in Columbia County have allowed me to extend and enhance the core curriculum to all other areas of our students' middle-school experience," Hickey said. "I credit the success of my program to the support I receive from the wonderful faculty and staff at Grovetown Middle. It's an honor to represent them as their Teacher of the Year."
