Miss Jen Cooke
Hello Mallinckrodt Community!
I’m Miss Jen Cooke, and I’m so excited to be joining the Mallinckrodt family as a first grade teacher! I’m thrilled for this opportunity to be teaching in my own neighborhood. My promise to the community is that my classroom will be a place where children are valued, respected, and provided with high-quality academic and social-emotional learning opportunities.
I graduated from Truman State University in 2010 with my Master’s of Arts in Education. This will be my 9th year teaching at the elementary level. For two of those years, I served as a kindergarten-5th grade technology teacher. My current teaching certifications are in early childhood, elementary school, middle school math, and middle school language arts. As a result of the coursework I’ve taken this summer, I’m also on track to achieve my k-12 gifted certification very soon!
In my spare time, I love drinking coffee, reading, walking my dogs, watching movies, exercising, taking graduate classes online, and spending time with my family and friends. Teaching is my passion, and I’m so thankful that I get the opportunity to do it each and every day. I’m looking forward to working with all of you this year!
