Hello, my name is Jane Oestreich and I am the principal of Hickey Elementary School. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education Degree from Central Michigan University, as well as a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and a second Master's Degree in Elementary Education, both from the University of North Texas. I am starting my 16th year working for the district. My husband and I have lived in Plano for 19 years and we have two children who successfully completed their K-12 education in Plano.
Our school song states, "Hickey Elementary is the best school in the world", and that is how I feel about being at this school. We have high expectations for learning at Hickey. I marvel daily about the talented teaching staff, the delightful and respectful students, and the extraordinary families that are at our school each day. Your children are fortunate to have the Hickey staff assist them as they develop lifelong learner and 21st century skills. It is a joy to come to school each day and work with such wonderful students, parents, staff, and community.
Thank you for sharing your children with me each school day.
Greetings Hickey All Stars!
I am delighted to serve another year as your assistant principal. It is an honor to work with such a dedicated staff, hard-working students, supportive parents, and a caring community!
