Cathy D. Hicks is currently the Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA)/Induction Coordi-nator for the San Dieguito Union High School District in Southern California. She oversees a two-year induction program for new teachers. She is the co-author of What Successful Teachers Do: 91 Research-Based Classroom Strategies for New and Veteran Teachers (Corwin Press, 2003). Cathy serves nbsp;on the Executive Board of the California Association of School Health Educators (CASHE) and is on the adjunct faculty of California State University, San Marcos, teaching methods courses for teachers completing their credentials. She has presented at more than a dozen mentor-teacher leader conferences. Cathy has taught at both the middle and high school level for over 27 years. During that time she was involved in the California State Mentor Teacher Program and has been mentoring new teachers in her district for more than 19 years. Her energy, enthusiasm, and passion for teaching and supporting new teachers reinforce the career path she chose in elementary school. She believes the most effective teachers are the ones who never settle for good enough but continue to grow, stretch, reflect, create, collaborate, and take risks throughout their teaching careers. Cathy is married and has two grown children and one adorable granddaughter.
