Alicia Hicks, Van Buren MS

Alicia Hicks, head teacher at Van Buren Middle School, is retiring at the end of the semester after 20 years with APS.

Ms. Hicks came to APS in 1991 after working for two years in Phoenix, Ariz., as an elementary school teacher.

She began her career in APS as an Indian education tutor at both Kennedy and Van Buren middle schools. She then joined the staff of Van Buren as a special education teacher. She and her teaching partner ran a store on campus that provided students with work environment experience.

Ms. Hicks became head teacher at Van Buren 16 years ago and has served in this position ever since.

To say she will be greatly missed is an understatement, however she now has time to indulge her incredible artistic talents as well as horticultural interests.

A reception at Van Buren will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, to celebrate her retirement.
