Pickens Middle is so pleased to welcome our second and final staff addition for the 21-22 school year- Mr. Ted Knittel! Mr. Knittel will join our seventh grade team as a Social Studies teacher. He brings great experiences from his prior teaching positions, and I believe he will immediately have a positive impact on our students. Mr. Ted Knittel is joining us from Northern California. He has been a social studies and AVID teacher for ten years. His bachelor's degree is in History and his master's is in Educational Leadership. He lives with his wife and three children (Joey, Roland, and Dylan) in Central. His hobbies include playing with his kids, hiking, hunting, fishing, and target shooting. Please help us welcome Mr. Knittel. #sparkpride!
