    Teacher Biography
    Mrs. Rachel Wickham/Novi is ecstatic about beginning her fifth year at Freedom High School! Mrs. Wickham/Novi grew up in Houston, Texas, but she has been living in this beautiful state for a decade and loves it. Mrs. Wickham/Novi attended James Madison University, and double majored in Theatre and English; she also has her Master's degree in Teaching. Her passion is for learning, reading, analyzing, and playing, and she cannot wait to incorporate all of these things into her drama classes this year. Outside of school, Mrs. Wickham/Novi enjoys hiking, belting songs in her car, and eating sushi. She also takes pictures of her cats as a hobby and will share them with anyone who is interested! She is looking forward to another fantastic year at Freedom in the Fine Arts department!
