  • Welcome to Hickey Elementary and the 2022-2023 school year! 

    I look forward to meeting and working alongside our entire Hickey community this year, my first year as the principal. This is my fifteenth year in education. I moved to the Dallas area in 2009 and began teaching second grade at Plano ISD’s Shepard Elementary School. After becoming a team leader, I quickly developed a passion for coaching and professional learning. This passion led me to a position as a curriculum and instructional specialist with the Elementary Academic Services department. I served the teachers and students of Plano ISD in that role for three years. As the assistant principal of Daffron Elementary, I enjoyed the opportunity to develop relationships with the students, staff, and families. 

    My experience in Plano ISD helps me to join the Hickey staff and continue the trajectory of excellence. I believe every teacher can engage, empower, and elevate our students to activate their unique potential in a dynamic world. I will work with our staff to create a supportive environment where students are committed to excellence, dedicated to caring, powered by learning, and always Plano Proud. 

    Outside of school, I have a wonderful family with four children and two spoiled dogs! They all keep me on my toes! We enjoy tent camping and family game nights. 

    I am eager to connect with you and the children you entrust to us each school day. I look forward to making positive contributions to the great work already accomplished at Hickey. We are going to have a wonderful school year. 

    On behalf of myself and this wonderful staff, welcome to Hickey! We are so glad you're an All Star!
