A Message from Mrs. Cockrell
    My Family
    I am excited to serve as your Assistant Principal at Mannsdale Upper Elementary. I had the pleasure of serving as the Literacy Specialist for Mannsdale Upper Elementary for three years before becoming the assistant principal.
    I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Delta State University. I also completed my Master's and Specialist degrees in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction from Mississippi College. I recently defended my dissertation and will graduate from William Carey University on August 5, 2022.  
    My husband, Demetrous, and I have three children, Demetrous, Jr., Cameron, and Caitlin, who keep us busy. We enjoy our time bowling, playing miniature golf, swimming, just hanging out, watching movies, and laughing. One of my favorite pastimes is reading and researching everything involving education. I do read for pleasure too! 😃
    I look forward to working together to ensure the success of your child. 
    It is truly a great day to be a Maverick! Especially at Mannsdale Upper Elementary School!
    Nicole Cockrell, Ed.D.
