Mrs. Michelle Altom

Plano West Counselor (Last names Os-R)

Welcome to my page! PISD has been an important part of my life since 1975 when I was a first grade student at Shepard Elementary School. I graduated from Plano East and have been a counselor in the district since 1996.  Still PISD Proud, I am excited about the coming school year and the opportunity to serve students, families, neighbors and friends!

 I graduated from Texas Christian University with a B.S. in Education and Texas Women's University with a Masters of Education in Counseling.  A certified school counselor and licensed professional counselor, I have worked in clinical, private and school settings for over 25 years. I have been at Plano West Senior High School for almost 10 years and can't imagine serving any other district in Texas! 

When not on campus, I enjoy the outdoors, competitive tennis, traveling, baseball, photography and spending time with my family and certified therapy dog, Walter.
