Hickey Hornets!

I am your School Social Worker. As a social worker, I have learned that self care is so important to that I try to incorporate it into my daily routine. When I can, I enjoy taking walks to get my body moving and my brain focused on positive thoughts. I also enjoy reading motivational books, yoga, and journaling. I encourage every student that I work with to think about ways they can take care of themselves and handle daily pressures of being a student appropriately. 

I look forward to supporting our students and their families. On my page I hope you will find helpful resources. 


  • I am so excited to see everyone in person this school year! This year we have added a Calming Room for all of our scholars to utilize when their minds or bodies need a break. Hickey Hornets will continue to practice Mindfulness this yeaar by engaging in mindful exercises such as yoga and breathing exercises to name a few. I look forward assisting you all socially and emotionally.
