Hello, my name is Kelly Pickel. This is my second year teaching school. I'm very eager to begin my teaching career at Rockdale Intermediate School. I'm excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher. We are going to have an eventful and fun year learning about writing, reading, social studies, math and science.
I am a graduate of Rockdale High School. I'm not only a graduate of Rockdale, but I'm a 3rd generation Rockdale teacher. After high school, I graduated from Texas A&M University. I married my husband Jeff, and we have 2 wonderful boys. Braden is a 5th grader here at RIS and Collin is in kindergarten at RES. I am passionate about teaching and providing your child with a fun place to learn. As both a teacher and a mother, I pledge to treat your child with the same respect, kindness, and dignity with which I would expect any of my son's teachers to treat them. We are going to have a great year! GO TIGERS!
