Jacki Hickey teaches kindergarten. She graduated from Viterbo University with a major in elementary education, and a minor in early childhood education. She completed her masters at UW-La Crosse.

Why did you become a teacher? I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher because I have always enjoyed helping others learn new things.  I had many influential teachers growing up who made school a fun and enjoyable place for me.  I strive to provide the same for my students.

What do you love most about the West Salem School District? I love the small, hometown feeling that WSSD has.  It is wonderful to live and work in a close-knit community where people truly care about one another.  I was lucky enough to find my first teaching job in WSSD right out of college, and I hope to retire from here someday!

Favorite quote? "You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose!"  Dr. Seuss

A little more... In my free time, I love spending time with my family camping, boating, hiking, cheering for the Packers, and reading!
