I"m sure you always wondered "who is Mrs. Dicks?" Today is your lucky day....
I grew up in Canton, Mo and Quincy, Il. I lived in Canton, MO until the middle of my 5th grade year. (I know how those of you that are new to a school, job, or town feel...scared, nervous, excited.)
I finished high school and graduated from QHS in 1989! I know that was before cell phones, laptops and xbox...as a matter of fact I had to type on a typewriter, talk on my cordless, and play cards with my family. There is really nothing better than a good game of "spoons" to enjoy your family and friends.
I went to college here in Quincy. Graduated from Quincy College (now Quincy University) in 1993. I began teaching 5th grade in Baldwin South before moving to Chandler, AZ to teach 6th grade.
In 2003 I married my husband Derek and built a house in Queen Creek, AZ. I loved the area, school, and the sunny weather. BUT nothing is better than being near family and Derek and I moved back to Quincy in the summer 2006. I was lucky enough to get back in to Baldwin South teaching 6th grade.
I worked to get my Master's Degree in Administration through Williams Woods University. I now am teaching 7th grade ELA at QJHS. Go 7 Yellow Lanterns!
