Greetings Pickett Elementary Families & Community!

    I am happy to serve as the Principal of Pickett Elementary. I have worked as a Principal, Assistant Principal and Teacher in various schools in Duval County for over 30 years. I am looking forward to leading this great school as we work collaboratively to create a positive and safe learning environment.

    We are excited to acknowledge the great accomplishments students made on the 2022 State Assessments. Based on the State’s Accountability System, students went up in every area on the FSA! This is a great achievement, and I am excited to continue the magnificent work that has been established at Pickett Elementary. The dedicated teachers and staff will continue to work diligently to provide a safe, rigorous, and enriching learning environment.

    Our school theme this year is “Mapping the Road to Success.” We will work to map out a plan that will lead our paths to Academic Success. We will map out the course of action and follow all directions to meet and master all Academic Goals that lead to Success.

    We welcome our families to be a part of this journey to academic excellence. Your parental involvement in your child’s education is a crucial tool necessary to chart the course to reach the targeted goal. We invite you to join our efforts as we provide the necessary steps to ensure students are on the right road necessary for student growth. I invite you to lend your talents, time, and your heart to the work we must accomplish this year. If we may assist you in any way, please give us a call or come by the school. Thank you for your support, please feel free to visit and complete a volunteer application to volunteer around the school!
