Principal: Britney Hickman

Welcome to BEAR County! My name is Britney Hickman, principal at Sylvan Hills Elementary. I’ve been in education for 14 years. I’ve obtained my BSE, MSE, Building Level Leader Certification, and EdS from Henderson State University. I believe that every scholar can learn and deserves an opportunity to be exposed to high quality instruction. Our big rocks will be focusing on AVID, PBIS, small group learning, and differentiated instruction. I take pride in continuously promoting student growth for all scholars and learning throughout the year. We have a dedicated and passionate staff that’s ready to serve your child this year. Welcome to SHES!
