Ms. Jen Cooke
Hello Mallinckrodt Community, and Welcome Back to the 2021-2022 School Year!
I’m Ms. Jen Cooke, and I’m so thankful to be a first grade teacher here! I absolutely LOVE teaching in my own neighborhood. My promise to the community is that my classroom is 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 10th 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’m currently taking, I’m also on track to achieve my k-12 gifted certification by the end of the school year!
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 very much looking forward to working with all of you this year!
