Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lori Yoakam

I am the GT Facilitator for THES. I am originally from West Texas and move to North Texas in 1999. This year will be my 24th year of teaching. Luckily, I have been at Hicks since the day it opened in 2004. I have had experience teaching 6th grade, 5th grade and now GT. I live in the area so I am always excited to see the kids I teach or have taught over the years in the neighborhood. I am married and have one child. Ellie is in 6th grade this year at Arbor Creek Middle School but spent all of her elementary years here with me at HICKS. I feel blessed every day that I get to come to work at such an amazing school and with an incredible staff.
