Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Peter Hickey

I have been a teacher in Ridgefield Public Schools for more than twenty years. I earned my undergraduate degree in Physical Education at William Paterson University, and a master's degree in Health Education at New Jersey City University. I am certified to teach Physical Education and Health and Driver's Education in the State of New Jersey. I have also coached a variety of sports in Ridgefield including basketball, soccer, and tennis. I have taught at Bergen Boulevard School and Slocum Skewes School, but have spent most of my career at the High School, teaching 9th through 12th grades as well as adapted physical education classes. I have served on multiple committees as well, including the Honor Roll Committee, the School Improvement Committee, and the School Climate Committee. 

I believe that physical education contributes to students' physical, social, and psychological well-being. A healthy lifestyle is important to every individual's success.
