Mrs. Callan

I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Child and Family Studies and a minor in English from Tarleton State University.  I immediately went to work preparing North Garland High School students to become college ready through TRIO Upward Bound at Richland College.  Soon I noticed an alarming number of high school students needed remedial reading and math classes before taking college level coursework.  I decided to earn my teaching certification and headed to where it all begins- elementary school!  Prior to Hickey, I was a Bilintual Teacher in McKinney ISD for nine years in grades Pre-K and 5th grades.  At Hickey I taught 4th grade for two years before having the privilege of serving as our ESL Specialist.  Through this role, my passion remains the same, just through a different medium- helping every student feel successful by building a strong educational foundation using the English langage!  I am grateful for this opportunity, which allows me to learn so much about different cultures, languages and traditions while teaching students English and American holidays and traditions.  Outside of school, I enjoy making memories with my husband and two children through delicious food, sports and outdoor activities.  I also enjoy volunteering at church, craft projects, event planning and spending time with family and friends.
