    Mr. Pickel Hi, my name is Nicholas Pickel and I am a Math Specialist at Columbus Elementary School. One of my greatest passions, besides teaching, is the outdoors. I spend as much time as I can hunting, fishing, and hiking. I have coached soccer and baseball, and I currently coach a middle school basketball team. In the past, I have taught all subjects in both 4th and 5th grade at a charter school in Yonkers. This school year I will be a Math Specialist for grades 4-6. I look forward to a great school year of hard work and dedication to improving our student’s math abilities.

    Ms. Hopkins Greetings Columbus Friends & Family, my name is Kenyetta Hopkins and I am a Math Specialist at Columbus for grades K- 3. This is my 2nd year in the MVCSD and I am elated to begin my journey this school year working closely with the classroom teachers and our K-3 scholars. Together, Mr. Pickel and myself will be servicing the Columbus Scholars that require additional support in Math. Prior to joining the MVCSD, I taught 3rd grade math in a NYC Charter School. One of my favorite hobbies is to travel domestically and internationally and bring with me young ladies who have limited travel experience. I look forward to a great school year of hard work and dedication to improving our student’s math abilities.
