  • We move to desoto from duncanville in 2002 and i was very hesitate to move be cause my kids was going to duncanville schools.my youngest daughter was in the second grade so she would have to go to cockerell hill elementary .I went up to the school and met the principle mrs randle and the teachers and just was so pleased with the teachers and the principal.Mrs Randle she is so hands on with her students always giving them encouraging words extreme motivation to do your best in school.I was so impress with how such a good principal she is when was time for my child to leave i wish she could have been my daughters principal until she finish high school.she has that appeal that makes children want to learn. my daughter is in the 10th grade now and every now and then i see mrs randle she is still there.MY oldest children have children my grandchildren and i hope to get them to go to Cockrell hill because i know they will be in good hands.
