My name is Vicki Kilpatrick and it is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Rhodes Elementary! 

I received my Undergraduate degree at St. Mary’s University and my Master’s Degree at UTSA. 

I have been employed with Northside ISD for 21 years where I served as a reading specialist and have taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade at various campuses around the district.  My administrative experiences include serving as an Administrative Intern at Lewis Elementary and as the Vice-Principal at Steubing Elementary and McAndrew Elementary.
