Tiffany Hicks started her career in 2001 as a New York City Teaching Fellow in District 28. Her love of literacy led her to become a literacy coach in 2005, followed by her acceptance into the New Leaders Aspiring Principal Program where she served as a Resident Principal for one year at PS 161. Throughout her time in New Leaders, she developed the skills needed to strengthen the instructional core across the school, design and enact an improvement plan, and foster high expectations. In 2013, Tiffany was appointed as Principal at PS 160 back in District 28. Her goals for PS 160 are making thinking visible and building the capacity of teacher teams to close the gaps in ELA and mathematics.
