Hickerson's Home

Please watch the following video for Virtual Open House.


Welcome to English I and English II! I am Ms. Hickerson, and I'm in my 29th year in education. It is my hope that you will be a successful student in my class and that you will use this site to help you do just that.

The beginning of this school year will look different; please know that I am here to help you make the best of this situation. I've been happily working with high school students for a L-O-N-G time. We will get through this together.

We will be using Canvas as our digital platform. I will post assignments, information, and sometimes quizzes and tests there. You will be required to submit your assignments in Canvas as well.

My email is ahickerson@alexander.k12.nc.us Please feel free to contact me if you have a question or concern.

Grading Policy

All grades in this class will fall into one of the following categories:

Classwork/Homework 20%

Quiz 30%

Test, Writing Assignment, Major Project 50%


These are grades that are taken for on-task work, homework turn-in, and/or participation. The grade for a snapshot is either a 100 or a 0. I will take as many of these as I deem necessary,and they cannot be made-up or changed once the grade has been assigned. Snapshots count in the Classwork/Homework category of 20%.
