Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. My name is Mrs. Cooke and I am the K-4 Gifted and Talented (GT) teacher here at Jennie Dean. This is my 9th year of teaching!
I started my career here at Jennie Dean as a 2nd grade teacher in 2014. (My name was Ms. Yeager then!) I taught 2nd grade for two years and 3rd grade for one year. I then taught 5th grade for four years in ACPS, and finally was a 5th/6th grade Math Interventionist last year at Mayfield Intermediate.
I am originally from Philadelphia and earned my undergraduate degree from Temple University. (Go Owls!) In addition, I obtained my Gifted Endorsement from The College of William & Mary and spent three years as a TAG (Talented and Gifted) teacher. I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree from George Mason in Mathematics Educational Leadership. As a teacher, I have a love for learning and hope to instill this passion in each student I work with.
I look forward to an incredible year back at Dean as a dolphin and am most looking forward to learning and building fun, meaningful relationships with all students!
