Hello. My name is Kelly Pickel and I am continuing to teach 2nd grade this year at Wesley Lakes Elementary. I am so happy to be a part of our school. I have served in the field of education for 31 years. First, second, third, and fourth grades are the grades I have taught. First of all, I began my career teaching. This was a joyous time for me. I learned so much about the children. After a few years in the classroom, I served as the K-12 Henry County Language Arts/Reading Coordinator for a little over seven years. This was a great learning experience for me. In this position, I mostly worked with teachers. I began to really miss the children, and returned to the classroom for a few more years. Once again, after working with children, I entered a new adventure as a literacy coach. As a literacy coach, I worked in a school environment, along with children and teachers, but most of my work was accomplished with teachers. After serving in this capacity for about eight years, I longed to spend my days within the classroom. Therefore, in 2015, I came to Wesley Lakes and began working in second grade. I absolutely love being in the presence of children. We teach one another. We talk together. We dream together. We set goals and strive to meet those goals.
I can be reached in the following ways:
