Passionate about words and the Word, Mrs. Tricia Hicks combines these loves as a Bible, Literature, and Grammar Composition teacher. She views her role as a sixth grade homeroom teacher to be a bridge between the grammar and rhetoric years, and she encourages students to take personal responsibility for both their faith and their academics as they mature in their love of the Lord and learning. A Calvin College graduate and West Michigan native, Tricia has spent the last twenty-four years in Ohio with her husband Matt. They have four children, two MHA alumni and two current MHA students, and are members at North Cincinnati Community Church. If she is not reading, Tricia can be found at the lake enjoying water sports with her family, listening to podcasts, or working a crossword puzzle.
