Kara Hickok ’95

Lower and Middle School Physical Education

Kara, a 1995 Park graduate, is a physical education teacher for Lower and Middle Schools, working with children in Grades 3 through 8.

During the fall athletic season, she is head Varsity Field Hockey coach and in the spring, she is assistant Varsity Lacrosse coach.  

“One of the unique things about teaching cross divisionally in a Pre-K-12 school is the opportunity to teach students throughout their education at Park. As an in-house Upper School coach, I have often taught many students from Lower School physical education throughout their Upper School athletic careers. This in turn creates strong relationships and connections with my students during and after their time at Park. The relationships I made with the faculty at Park when I was a student continue to be some of my closest connections today.”

Prior to returning to Park, Kara was a Lower School pre-first and first grade classroom teacher at Pace Academy in Atlanta, Ga. She often chaperoned Middle School camping and outdoor education trips, and coached lacrosse and soccer in Upper School.

Kara received a B.A. in Spanish and History from Franklin and Marshall College, and has pursued graduate studies at Georgia State University and McDaniel College. Kara loves animals and worked in a veterinary hospital while in graduate school.
