Vickers Elementary

Welcome to Ms. Appelt's Gifted and Talented Class!

I have lived in the Victoria area all my life. I graduated from Stroman High School in 1981 and from UHV in 1997. I enjoy camping, traveling, gardening, and cooking with family.


 I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. My daughter, Jordan, is also a teacher.  She teaches 5th grade at Schorlemmer and is expecting her first child in November.  This summer, I took several camping trips.  I went to The Great Smokey Mountains in Tennessee and visited an Amish Community.  I'm also happy to announce that I am engaged to an amazing man, Dan Conley.  It was truly a summer of great memories!  


I taught in Calhoun County for 4 years before coming to Vickers. I have taught in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade with most of my years being in 3rd grade.  This year I will be the Gifted and Talented teacher on campus. I love the  enthusiasm of the GT students when it comes to learning and new challenges.  I love teaching at Vickers; the administration and staff are amazing! I look forward to an exciting 2020-2021 school year.
