Hello, my name is Mrs. Kristen Dicks, and I have truly loved teaching for the past 13 years. This is my eighth year at Norwood Park School. This year I will be teaching fifth grade Literacy and Social Studies. I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff of this wonderful school!
I graduated from Illinois State University with Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. After teaching in an area private school for five years, my path led me to Chicago Public Schools.
