Ms. Dakota Hicks
Hi there! My name is Dakota Hicks, and this is my first year at EHS! I am originally from Illinois. However, I decided to leave Illinois to go to culinary school at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina. There I received my Bachelors of Arts & Sciences in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management. Working in numerous restaurants and having the chance to work at the Augusta National Golf Club, I felt like I was missing something. So I decided to go back to school and follow my dream of becoming a teacher!
I enrolled online at East Carolina University where I received my secondary education certificate in Family & Consumer Sciences. I taught in North Carolina for 3 years before my fiance and I received orders to move to Alabama (Fort Rucker). Once arriving in Alabama, I became the hospitality and tourism instructor for Butler County Schools. While working two years in that school system, I attended Arkansas State University for my Masters in Educational Leadership. After two years in Butler County, I have made the transition to Enterprise City Schools.
I am thrilled to begin my 6th year teaching by being a part of the Wildcat family! I look forward to this exciting new school year. Go Cats!
