Alumni Camp 1 Summer Lead
Rodney works with children in:
Hello families of Athena,
My name is Rodney Hickman. I will be helping to lead Alumni Camp 1 at Athena Montessori Academy. I have an Associates in Arts and four years of experience in childcare. My previous three years of experience in childcare were at a play-based school, and I have completed my first year here at Athena working as Team Lead for our After School Program.
I grew up in Dallas, Texas, with my mom and sister and moved to Austin five years ago to move in with my boyfriend. I love the outdoors, reading comics and novels, playing board games, watching movies and TV shows, window shopping, and pursuing a healthier way of living. I have always had an interest in education since I spent many of my early years with my late grandmother. She was a special education teacher in at the elementary level, and she helped me to understand that in order to truly teach another person, you have to have patience and put yourself in the other person’s shoes to really understand them.
I am so happy to continue my journey with Athena Montessori Academy, and I look forward to getting to know all the Alumni 1 families.
