Kristin Hickman

Director of Northside Preschool

Kristin began her role as Northside Preschool Director on June 1, 2022. Prior to becoming director, she taught the three-year-old class at Northside Preschool. Kristin has a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences from Texas A&M University, and a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. After working as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, Kristin enjoyed staying home with her three children, and quickly fell in love with their Mother’s Day Out program in Dallas. She worked as a preschool teacher in the 2’s class until her husband’s job relocated them to Houston, and finally, San Antonio. Kristin and her husband, Brian, met through the Northside Youth Group as teens and are very happy that his job finally brought them back to San Antonio. They have three children, Addison (6th grade), Hannah (Kindergarten), and Cole (3’s class at Northside Preschool). Kristin enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, traveling, and serving in the Children’s Ministry at Northside.

Kristin has a passion for making sure every child has the opportunity to grow, both educationally and spiritually, in a safe and Christ-centered environment. She enjoys collaborating with and supporting the amazing teachers at Northside Preschool, and works every day to ensure they get the support they need to teach, love, and guide the precious children in their care. Kristin’s ultimate goal is for each child to come to know that God loves them and has BIG plans for their lives, while at the same time giving them a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning!
