Mrs. Karen Fickel

Mrs. Fickel graduated from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. This is her 8th year teaching middle school, and her second year in Boerne ISD. Mrs. Fickel's first 2 years of teaching were in the very small town of Crystal City, TX. She was able to get a feel for many different areas beacuase in a small town, you get to wear many hats! In CCISD, Mrs. Fickel taught 7th and 8th grade ELAR, Dyslexia, ESL, and was also the NJHS Sponsor, and a UIL coach. After that, she got married and went on to New Braunfels ISD, where she was a 6th-8th grade ESL Teacher and Cheer coach for 4 years. Mrs. Fickel's love of middle school and for teaching in a small town continues here in BISD, where she holds a coveted position by many teachers in Texas. Mrs. Fickel is proud to be a part of the Boerne Middle School North family, and all the traditions held there. 


Mrs. Fickel  loves to spend time with her husband, her thirteen year old son, and two year old daughter. Mrs. Fickel enjoys music, reading, swimming, working out, twitter, the outdoors, streaming good tv shows, traveling, and cute school supplies!
