At some point before 2010, Hickson became the librarian for P.S. 38. According to Nate Wright, when students are in the library, she does not want to see them acting idle. At one point, she sent Gina Hemphill-Toms to detention, and was the only teacher to do so.

Personality and Traits

Mrs. Hickson is strict and sometimes unfair. She is also devoted to her job. She also had a good memory, as she never forgot a name, a face, or a book that was overdue. She was disdainful of "hanging out." She is skilled with pretending to be interested in what children are reading about. Still, she has never been "Godfrey mad" except when Nate destroyed one of her beanbag chairs.

Behind the Scenes

  • She has a nickname of Hickey, as said in Big Nate Strikes Again.
  • She also is not into "hanging out", and it was probably not her idea to put in the bean bags in the library.
  • It is interesting to note that in one of the puzzles in Boredom Buster, Mrs Hickson was one of Nate's favorite teachers. This is opposed to in Big Nate Strikes Again, as seen in the pictures on the right.
  • She is rated as 'upset weekly' in Nate's 'P.S. 38 ANGERGRAPH!'
  • She is usually good at pretending to be interested in whatever books kids are reading, even if they're total snooze-fests as stated by Nate on page 3 in Big Nate Lives It Up.
