Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mona Hickerson, and I am the dyslexia teacher here at Haynes Elementary. I was born in Texas but spend my childhood moving about every two years! As a kid, I lived in Texas, Colorado, Arizona and California where I graduated from high school and completed college at California State University Fresno and received a B.A. in Early Childhood Education. After college, I went to paralegal school and worked in the legal field for 6 years before I went back to teaching. I taught in rural Oklahoma for 18 years before moving to Killeen in 2015 where I taught 1st grade and dyslexia at Saegert Elementary. Last year, I became part of the Haynes family. My favorite things to do are relaxing in the pool and planting flowers in my garden.
