Mrs. Wicks attended the University of Vermont studying Secondary Education for Science. Her Catholic faith flourished in contrast to UVM’s abrasive secular culture as she found a small but devout community at the Catholic Center on campus. She volunteered teaching middle and high school religious education during college and years after. Upon graduating in 2014, Mrs. Wicks briefly taught science at the middle and high school level before staying home to raise her growing family. For the past three years, she has since returned to teaching at a Catholic school in Vermont as the sole middle school science teacher. She enjoys the unique teaching strategies specific to the developmental needs of middle school students, but also enjoys the more challenging subject matter and critical thinking that high school students can tackle. She is excited to be moving with her husband and three children to the beautiful state of New Hampshire to join Mount Royal’s vibrant Catholic community.
