Ms. Cooke has been at Berkeley Hall since 2017 and has enjoying applying her varied experiences to support the program, currently as Administrator of the Berkeley Hall Virtual Schoolhouse.
She’s at BHS because she loves the supportive atmosphere and the team of student, teacher, parent that is developed.
Why do I love teaching? The look on a student’s face when it goes from confused to understanding, from frustrated to enlightened, from uncomfortable to comfortable, from a feeling of being new to belonging, is what I love about teaching. These are the faces of students learning that working hard for something pays off and working together makes the load lighter.
