Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!


Welcome to Kindergarten!  My name is Cara Hicks and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher!  I am looking forward to meeting you soon and welcoming you into our classroom.  In our classroom, I like to create an environment that ignites a love of learning, provides opportunities for problem-solving and supports social-emotional development.  Kindergarten is a very exciting year and we will be having a lot of fun.  We will explore and learn together through hands-on and exciting adventures.  


This is my 13th year teaching.  My past experience includes Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and I was also a reading and math specialist.  I have taught in both public and private schools.  I joined the St. Rita faculty three years ago but have been a part of the community for the past 9 years.   


One fun fact about my family is that everyone’s name begins with the letter C.  My husband, Cash, and I have two amazing sons.  My oldest son, Corbin, is in 9th grade at Jesuit, and my youngest son, Colin, is in 3rd grade.  When I am not teaching or creating new things for our classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending my children's extracurricular events, traveling, and reading. 


I am excited to welcome you to St. Rita! It is truly an honor and a blessing to get to help guide your child through their Kindergarten year.  I feel so lucky to not only help your child make leaps and bounds academically, but I also get to lead them as they get to know Jesus more and strengthen their relationship with Him.  


We are going to have an amazing year!
