My name is Ricky Hicks and  joined the Franklin Park family as the School Counselor during the 2020-2021 school year.  I am a first year School Counselor; however, I bring a wealth of leadership knowledge in personal relationship and cooperative team building.  My primary focus here at Franklin Park as a School Counselor is:


  • Assisting students with their social, emotional, and educational development
  • To provide the needed support to develop positive self-concepts and the motivation necessary for learning
  • To serve as a resource to students, parents, teachers and administrators

My ambition as a school counselor is to help each student work to their potential and also to assist parents and teachers in achieving this goal.  I feel that structured sessions and implementation of techniques such as play therapy, has produced positive results and opened lines of communication between students.  I believe all students have the ability to excel and together we can achieve great things.
