Mrs. Kristen Cook
I am so happy to be joining the Cool Spring family as a Reading Specialist! Before coming to Cool Spring, I was a Reading Specialist at Hillside Elementary for fifteen years. I also taught third grade at Hillside for six years. Prior to coming to Loudoun County, I taught Kindergarten in Johnstown, Pennsylavnia for two years. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a Master's degree in Reading from Shenandoah University. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, reading, listening to music, and traveling.
"There's no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books." This quote by James Patterson represents my view on reading. As educators, we strive to instill the love of reading in our students.
