Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jared Cook - 7th Science
Howdy! My name is Jared Cook, aka Mr. Cook (he/him/his), and I joined LEISD in 2021. I'm a Denton County native, born and raised across Lake Lewisville in the Lake Cities area. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a BA in Biology, a Chemistry minor, and my teaching certification in Life Sciences grades 7-12. I've since added a composite science certification to that, which allows me to teach most science courses for grades 7-12.
A little about me:
I'm an avid science fan, my favorite fields and topics include biology (particularly ecology), gemology, and aquatic sciences.
I collect gemstones, rocks, minerals and crystals (in other words: I'm a goblin who likes shiny things).
I have one pet, a 5 year old dog (red heeler) named Scout.
When I was in Lake Dallas public schools, my hobbies and extra-curriculars included band (baritone saxophone), theatre, art/photography, GSA & public broadcasting
In my down time I enjoy video games, reading, and hanging out with my dog.
The things I value most in my classroom are inclusiveness and respect. I always want to make sure I'm addressing my students in a way that is comfortable for them, that affirms their identity, and allows for humor, fun and learning. In return, I expect my students to address me with the same level of respect.
I'm so excited to get to know everyone and get this school year started! Go Lobos!
