Mrs. Michelle Pickett
Mrs. Pickett is so excited to blaze another trail at Discovery Elementary this year! She can’t wait to meet her wonderful fourth graders and start the school year.
Mrs. Pickett is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. She frequently travels back to Pittsburgh to visit her parents and siblings. After college, she went on to substitute teach and eventually made her way down to Alexandria, Virginia where she taught sixth grade. Mrs. Pickett and her husband decided to make the move to Sterling, Virginia three years ago where she was thrilled to learn that she would be teaching at Discovery Elementary School. This is her third year teaching fourth grade at Discovery. When she isn’t in the classroom, you can find her chasing after her toddler, cooking, traveling, watching movies, or hiking.
Teaching has always been a passion for Mrs. Pickett ever since grade school when she had a terrific History teacher that made learning exciting and engaging. She is looking forward to having a ton of fun this year with her new bunch of students!
