About Mrs. Cook...
Position: Kindergarten Teacher
Email: Mrs. Cook
Welcome to Kindergarten! I am eager to embark on this journey with you and your child! It will be a fun year filled with learning, community, and growth.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Child and Adolescent Development from Cal State Fullerton in 2008. Since then, I have worked as a behavioral therapist for children with autism ages 2-13 in various settings. I have also worked with a nonprofit to develop leadership skills in college students. I received my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction (Early Childhood), teaching certification, and SEI endorsement from ASU in May of 2022. Go Sun Devils! I am trained in Spalding I.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that building trust with my students and creating a safe and caring classroom community is the foundation to all learning. When students feel they belong and are valued as part of the classroom community, they are more likely to engage and take risks. This can lead to deeper learning and higher student achievement. As the teacher, I will develop lessons that are engaging and adapted to various learning styles. I will seek to build upon their prior knowledge and experiences in creative and innovative ways. As the parent, you are a vital piece to your child's learning. I look forward to coming alongside you in this journey. It's going to be a great year!
