Meet the ESL Team

Mary Vick

Hi! My name is Mary Vick and I am the Language Acquisition Specialist (LAS) at Rockbrook Elementary School. That is just a fancy time for the ESL teacher. I received my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Elementary Education from TCU in 2007. I have taught 4th grade ESL (for 1 year), 1st grade Dual Language (for 2 years), and 2nd grade Dual Language (for 2 years) all at Central Elementary school. I began my career as a LAS at Rockbrook Elementary last year and I absolutely love it!

My husband teaches 8th grade math at Hedrick Middle School and we have two beautiful children; Addison (5) and Nolan (2 1/2). I love being a mom even though it's the hardest job I have ever had!!

Becky Pilgrim

Hello! My name is Ms. Pilgrim and I am the ESL paraprofessional working alongside Mrs. Vick. My degree is in Education and I graduated from East Texas State University. I have worked in education as a local Weekday Preschool Director (8 years) and previously in Special Education with LISD (3 years). This is my second year working with ESL students, which I enjoy very much! I have a married daughter that is also a teacher and the mother of my 3-year-old grandson, who is an adorable child! At home, I have a 60-pound Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Maxwell who keeps me very busy going to the dog park. I’m very active in my community of Coppell and enjoy spending lots of time with family and friends. I love being a part of the Rockbrook Bear team!
