Teacher of the Year


Congratulations to Marla Wood,

Hickory High School’s

2021-2022 Teacher of the year!

Mrs. Wood, you have taught everything from Adaptive Drama to Honors English 12. While doing so, you have saught out and brought forth excellence in every child under your care.  You serve as the head of the department that has more after-school programs than any other.  Like New York, the Fine Arts department never sleeps. The show always goes on.  Even during the pandemic, you led your department in preparing amazing virtual performances, making sure the lights never went out for any of our students.  You lead with care and compassion. Your fierce advocacy for your colleagues and students alike has not gone unnoticed.  We are so very proud for you to represent Hickory High School as our 2022 Teacher of the Year!

Thank you,
HHS TOY Committee
