My job as counselor at Paul Kinder Middle School is full of interesting stories. No day is exactly the same and I thoroughly enjoy getting to work with so many fun and creative students and parents.

I am responsible for 8th graders M-Z and all of 6th grade. Some of my jobs include helping students plan for their future careers through our Missouri Connections program, helping students process through social and emotional needs, and working with teachers, parents, and administrators to ensure that all students are working to their potential.

I have worked as a counselor for 11 years and this will be my 7th year at PKMS. I originally started in education as a teacher with a Bachelor of Arts in secondary teaching from UMKC and then earned a Masters in secondary counseling from UCM in 2009. 

I have been married for 14 years and have two kids, Courtney and Ryan. 

The best way to contact me is by calling 816-874-3570 ext:43570 or emailing me at dhicks@bssd.net

Just let me know if there is anything I can do to help you have a great school year!
