Stephen Hickman

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this opportunity to participate in the Forest community.

 My background is varied and differentiated, but in every position previously held, I have always been able to apply my background and education of mathematics and teaching.

 My business career has included such quality companies as Bank  of America, Sears Holdings Corporation, and Pepsico/Frito Lay North America. I have held positions in sales, local management, and corporate leadership. Whenever any employer has interviewed me for a position, they always ask how will a mathematics degree help me. The answer is simple. Mathematics gives practice in developing problem solving, structured and logical thinking skills.

 After applying my knowledge in the corporate world for 20+ years, I am happy to have found a home and community where I can contribute to the WILDCAT way. By teaching here in Marion County at Forest, we are preparing the students for the future. No other environment is like that of Forest, where students are expected to exemplify, build, and use their education on a daily basis, and where I can relate to them the many uses of mathematics, both directly and indirectly, for the real world and help students build towards their future goals!
