Mr. Dedrick Buckels

Hello Eagles Family,

I feel truly blessed to start my twelfth year fulfilling my purpose as an Administrator; I'm starting my third year at Prosper High School.  I am excited to be working with such a cohesive and collaborative community.  Before becoming an Assistant Principal, I served students with special needs as a teacher for five years as well as coached football, track, soccer, and cross country.  I look forward to all this school year has ahead and being fully integrated into the PISD mission and graduate profile for its students.  Throughout my tenure at Prosper High School and PISD, I will be dedicated to the students, the staff, and the greater community of Prosper and will value each of the relationships that I build.

My family and I built our forever home in Prosper, so I'm truly invested in our schools and community.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years, and we have a 3rd  grader attending Folsom Elementary and 6th grader attending Rogers Middle. 

My responsibilities at Prosper High School include serving students with alpha last name “A-B” as well as working directly with the Math. My greatest passion and goal this year is partnering with students, parents, staff, and community leaders alike to ensure that we continue to embody the “We are Prosper, We are One” attitude.
