My name is Michele Pickens and I am one of three math specialists at Lincoln Elementary School.  I am the math specialist assigned to grades 4 and 5.  This is my 9th year at Lincoln.  Prior to coming to Lincoln, I was an elementary math teacher specialist at central office traveling to different schools to support math instructions across the county.  I was also the primary (pre-K to grade 2) math specialist at Hillcrest Elementary.  I began my teaching career as a special education teacher at North Frederick Elementary School.  This is my 24th year with FCPS.

I graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary & Middle School Education with a concentration in Mathematics.  I have my Master’s Degree from Hood College in Special Education.  I completed an additional endorsement with McDaniel College as an Elementary Mathematics Instructional Leader.

I enjoy teaching mathematics and challenging students to persevere in solving problems by using what they know to solve problems they find as challenging.  I believe all students can learn mathematics and share their strategies.  Go Panthers!
