Mr. Robert Nickel

 Welcome to fifth grade on our Quest for Excellence!  I can't wait to share this memorable year with your child!  It is going to be an amazing year at Cockrell Elementary. This year, I will be teaching United States History and Science.  Mrs. Arrington, Mrs. Lee, and I will be a team of three, and we will share our students throughout the day.  Our daily schedule and rotation schedule is listed below.

I am excited about being a part of the Cockrell Team where every student is a champion.  This will be my 24th year in elementary education and my 12th year in Prosper.  I graduated from the University of North Texas with  degrees in Math and Elementary Education in 1995. I received my Masters degree from the University of North Texas in 2002.  


The greatest aspect of my job is being able to help each student achieve success.   I look forward to a wonderful  year of learning with your children during the 2018-2019 school year!

All classroom resources including notes, vocabulary, Quizlets, etc...are located on your child's Google Classroom for their use.  Please have them check it frequently.
