Hi, I'm LaDonna Hicks and I am excited about First Grade! I have taught at Youngs Grove since it opened in 2010. I taught at Cherokee Elementary for 11 years prior to moving to Youngs Grove. I graduated from Cedartown High School in 1987 and went on to earn my Bachlors and Masters degree in Early Childhood from the University of West Georgia. I began teaching pre-kindergarten in Floyd County in 1996. I am so proud to be teaching in my hometown. I can't imagine any other career. I am looking foward to another great year!
I am married to Billy Hicks and we have two awesome kids! MiKayla is a sophmore at GNTC and Caleb is a fourth grader at Youngs Grove. As a family, we love traveling, riding atvs and dirtbikes, eating out, playing games, and participating in church activities. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about school. I can be reached at 678-901-4294, by email at email@example.com , or by a note in your child's agenda.
