Mrs. Jennifer Hickey is our new Grade 2 teacher. Mrs. Hickey returns to the Rockford area after teaching for seven years at the Imagine Charter School in Boynton Beach, Florida. While teaching first grade, Mrs. Hickey also served as the Primary Team leader, a faculty mentor, the Reading Club advisor, and Kiwanis Kids program sponsor. Her teaching philosophy includes learning through civic engagement. She hopes to involve her Keith students in service learning initiatives such as Operation Christmas Child, Thanksgiving Basket Building, and Angel Tree Adoption. Mrs. Hickey earned a Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Rockford University and a Bachelor of Arts in Media Management from Columbia College. Mrs. Hickey, and husband Jason, enjoy entertaining their Labrador puppy, Leo. In her leisure time, Mrs. Hickey also loves to cook — and of course read!
