Mrs. Jada Hickey

Welcome to First Grade!! I am SO excited about getting to know you and your child this year!!

This is my eighth year at Bens Branch. My previous 5 years of teaching were in Alexandria, Louisiana.  

In the past, I taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade BUT my heart IS and has ALWAYS been in 1st grade!! I love to see how much my students grow each year. 

I have been married for 14 years. My husband Kirk and I have an nine-year old daughter, Ella. We moved here when she was 2 and I can not believe she is already going into 4th grade!!! She is in the Dual Language program here at BBE. 

My husband and I were born and raised around Lafayette, Louisiana. We love football and traveling!! We are big SAINTS, LSU, and ULL fans!!! 

My conference period is from 1-1:50. Please feel free to email or call if you have any questions or concerns.
