About The Instructor:

My name is Brad Hicks. I teach High School Science at Caldwell Applied Sciences Academy. I have taught science for 14 years and each year I enjoy it even more. Some personal things about me include, I have been married to my wife, Rebecca for 17 years. We have two amazing daughters Mallory Jane who is 14, and Mariella who is 10 years old. A way I would describe my family would be that we are “dog lovers.” We love dogs and we love meeting new dogs. Currently, we have three dogs- One Golden Retriever named Rosie, a rat terrier named Buddy, and a crazy Chihuahua named Princess. They are spoiled and extra-loved.
