Brianna Cardiff Hicks



Special Tracks


Brianna and her husband Steve have been homeschooling their children for the last seven years. She is a co-founder (with her husband and parents) of the American History Education Project, a Great Picture Books curriculum that brings history to life for young children and helps parents teach the values that made America exceptional. She loves reading aloud to her three children.

She is a second generation homeschooler; her parents homeschooled her all the way through high school. Growing up, she served for six years as editor of AWL News, the monthly newsletter of All Ways Learning, a homeschool support group in Silicon Valley. She also wrote the Picture Book of the Month column for AWL News, which helped prepare her for developing the Great Picture Book curriculum that serves as the foundation for the American History Education Project. Brianna has a PhD in Economics from Stanford University and vets all of the economic activities in AHEP. She also develops all of the Arts & Crafts activities.
