Mr. Dedrick Buckels

Hello Rock Hill Family,

I feel truly blessed to start my thirteenth year fulfilling my purpose as an Administrator and fourth year in Prosper ISD. I am very excited about being part of the inaugural staff at Rock Hill High School! It's a great pleasure 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 Rock Hill 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 18 years, and we have a 4th  grader attending Folsom Elementary and 7th grader attending Rogers Middle. 

My responsibilities at Rock Hill High School include serving students with alpha last name “R-Z” as well as working directly with the Social Studies and Physical Education Departments. 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.
