Welcome to 4th Grade!!
I am Mrs. Cooke, and I teach Math and Science here at Chavez Elementary. This is my second year at Chavez, and I am so excited to be here. I began my teaching carreer teaching at preschools and Mother's Day Out type programs when I was 18. I finally went back to school and graduated from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in 2018. I truly love teaching, and couldn't imagine a better place to be than with my FamiLE here at Chavez. My life outside of school is quite literally a zoo, my husband, Marcel and I have one daughter, Catlynn, 3 dogs (Murphy, Tank, and Tilly), two birds (Harley and Indie), a fish (Cody), and a bearded dragon (Norbert). If you happen to visit my classroom you may just a get a chance to visit with Norbert. When I am not lesson planning or grading I love watching movies with my family, and curling up with a good book. I truly believe that books can take us anywhere, and anyone can be a world traveler as well as a traveler of stories. I have had some of the greatest adventures within the pages of a book. I really look forward to learning with you this year!
