Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Dickens

So, you want to know a little something about your child's teacher?

I'm an Army Brat. I have lived and traveled all over the United States and many countries. I have been married to the same man (God Bless him) for 37 years. We have two sons and three grandsons---Graham, Lincoln, and Bodhe. My greatest joy are my grandson's and Tilly--my Yorkie-Poo.

I started teaching in 1977, in rural Kentucky. Yes, I should be retired! But, I stayed home to be a mom for 11 years. I attended Tennesse Tech and Murray State University. I have been at Pelham Ridge for 2 years. I have taught Pre-school, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. But, kindergarten is my true passion. I love kindergarten because of that moment when I see the "Ah-ha" look on a child's face and they realize "Hey, I know this!"

I love traveling, going to the beach, knitting, reading, and taking pictures of my sweet grandsons and Tilly.
