7th grade Science

Hello everyone! My name is Jarad Hicks and I am very honored to be a member of the North Laurel Middle School family! I teach seventh grade science and robotics & engineering. This is my sixth year teaching at North Laurel Middle. I am also serving my third year on the Site Base Decision Making Council for the 2017-2018 school year.
I first fell in love with science when I was a student at SLHS while in Biology, Chemistry and Anatomy classes. I was hooked right from the start and continued my involvement in science throughout high school and college. I attended Eastern Kentucky University and received my Bachelor of Science in Middle Grade Education. I received my Master's Degree at Eastern Kentucky University as well.
I hope to expose students to various fields of science, encourage them to discover and consider that they themselves are scientists, and to help foster within them a lifetime love of science. A quote that I love is, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." ~ Albert Einstein
When not at school, I enjoy concerts, movies, reading, traveling, road trips, working with local youth through church and other youth ministries, spending time with my family and friends.
