Katie Hicks




My name is Katie Hicks and I am so happy that I will be teaching 8th grade Science this year!  This is my eighth year as a teacher at DISD and my second year in 8th grade Science.  I am excited and privileged to be taking this journey with these kids as they prepare for high school!

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and received my teaching certification from the University of North Texas.  Our family moved to Decatur from Austin 12 years ago and we have enjoyed becoming a part of this community.  Bella will be a sophmore at Decatur High School this year and our son Ezra will be with me at MMS in 7th grade.  My husband works nearby in Fort Worth and we enjoy traveling and spending time outside with our mini-Aussie.


Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about your kids or the class.
