Mrs. Allen

Welcome to Hickey!  My name is Michele Allen,  School Counselor here at Hickey.  I've been married to my highschool sweetheart for 31 years and we have two sons, ages 28 and 26, who are both Plano East Senior High alumni. My husband and I both grew up in Plano where I attended Plano schools;  Sigler Elementary, Wilson Middle School, Vines High School, and Plano Senior High.  My education includes an Associate of Arts in Business from Collin College, a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas Woman’s University, and a Master of Arts in School Counseling from Amberton University.    This is my 20th year in education, all spent in Plano ISD!  Prior to being a school counselor,  I taught kindergarten for ten years; three years at Sigler Elementary and seven years at Hunt Elementary.   I was ecstatic to be hired as the Hickey Elementary counselor upon graduating with my master's degree.  I have a passion for helping others and I absolutely love working with K-5th grade students and families in our community.  As a school counselor, I work with students, parents, and staff in a variety of ways, such as teaching guidance lessons to all classes on topics such as Social & Emotional Learning skills, kindness, empathy, goal setting, bully prevention, career/college readiness, and more.  In addition to guidance classes, I conduct small group lessons with students with specific needs. When I’m not at school, I’m spending time with family and friends, cooking, traveling, listening to music, gardening, and enjoying our three dogs and seven chickens.  It is such a privilege to work with the students, parents, and staff at Hickey Elementary!
