Ms. Paige Hicks

My name is Paige Hicks, and I am a proud 2002 AHS graduate. I have been teaching for 14 years. I am excited to teach the behavioral sciences, including Introduction to Sociology, Introduction to Psychology, and Advanced Placement Psychology. In the past, I have taught early and modern US history. I hold an Education Specialist degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University as well as a Master of Arts in Education from UNA and a Bachelor of Science from Athens State. In addition, I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I coach cheerleading and serve as the advisor for the Mike Jones Chapter of the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society. In addition, I am the President of Athens City Educators.

I live in Athens with my high school daughter, Meredith. We have two cats and a dog. We enjoy going to sporting events and watching Gilmore Girls. 

My classes are student-centered. I allow flexible due dates, and retakes/redos on almost all assignments. In my class, it does not matter WHEN a student learns the content or skill, it matters IF a student learns the content or skill. I love getting to know students.
