Hi! My name is Mrs. Ulick and I am the 8th grade homeroom teacher. I teach Science to 5th, 7th, and 8th grade. I also teach Language Arts and Reading to 8th grade. I am very excited every year to come up with new and interesting ways to help students learn the required material ~ this year is no different!
I live in Washington with my husband Shane and my four children. I have three daughters (Ashleigh, Rebekah, and Brooklyn) and one son (Austin). I love animals and always seem to have a big heart when it comes to strays. I have two cats (Riki and Tessy) and two dogs (Bailey and Holly). I have tried having fish, but they seem to die rather quickly. At one time my son had a hamster, but he kept getting out of the cage and one day we found him in the back of a dresser drawer and he was not moving (yuck!). No more hamsters after that!
I have lived in Washington all of my life not far from where my house is now. I have two brothers, one which lives very close, and one which lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
I graduated Washington Community High School (a very long time ago) and then attended Illinois State University where I majored in Mass Communications and minored in English. After a few years working in that field, I decided to stay home and raise my children. During that time, I took a real interest in teaching children. It was then I decided to return to college. I graduated from Eureka College in 2006 with a degree in Elementary Education.
Some of my favorite things to do are play softball, watch my children play sports, read, paint/remodel my house, write poetry, and write short stories. I tend to drive my husband a little crazy because I am always trying to paint or remodel something in our house ~ which usually involves him having more work!
