My name is Mrs. Denise Hicks. I am very excited to be teaching at Cullender Kindergarten. This is my 28th year of teaching young children and I love my job. I am a graduate of the Univerisity of Illinois and have spent all of my teaching career in the great state of Texas.
I am married to Greg Hicks and we have lived in Monahans for 32 years. I have 4 children - Michael, a computer tech and a product information manager, Ashley, who is married and works for MWPISD as a teacher, Danica, who is also married, and is a stay at home mommy, and Haylie who is a vet tech student and works for one of the local veterinarians. At the present moment, our family is also blessed to have my mother living with us. I also have six wonderful grandchildren that keep me busy with their schedules and activities - Julian , an 11th grader, Ethan, a 9th grader, Caius, a 5 year old, Jase who is one, Emery, an energetic 1 year old, and Alaric, a 9 month old.
When I am not busy with school and family activities, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and playing with our five small dogs - Butterbean, Clifford, Loki, Fozzie, and Strider.
