Emily Hickman grew up in Sugar Land, Texas. After graduating from Clements High School, she went on to earn a Bachelor’s of Science from Texas A&M University. Her focus was Elementary Education. She holds a Certificate in Teaching PK-4 and is also certified to teach ELLs.
Emily was hired by FBISD upon graduation and taught 2nd and 1st grade at Setters Way Elementary. Although her job was to teach phonics, math, reading, and writing, Emily always taught the whole person. She firmly believes that an individual learns best when they feel safe, valued, loved and respected. Those basic needs will always come first in her classroom before the curricula at hand.
Emily currently resides in Sugar Land with her husband, John, and two sons: Waid and Miles.
