Principal, Kelly Mickel

I grew up in New York and have now proudly been in the Ypsilanti community for nineteen years. I began my teaching career in 2004 at Kettering and Kaiser Elementary Schools as a Physical Education teacher and over the course of my tenure have taught at all levels, K-12. In 2009, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Eastern Michigan University. Over the course of my career in education, I have served as a coach, teacher, athletic director and now a principal for the past four years. I am now in my third year as principal of Erickson Elementary. My expertise in project-based learning, technology integration, innovation, and leadership has enhanced the instructional initiatives and school culture at Erickson. I have high expectations and am dedicated to ensuring the highest quality education for all children. I believe positive relationships are the foundation for high-quality teaching and learning and fostering a positive school culture and climate. Welcome to the Erickson family!
