Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
As we prepare for welcoming our students, I find myself reflecting on the wonderful year that we celebrated last year, where we are now, and where we anticipate our growth for the upcoming year. If you have not yet met me, my name is Christine Jeter, but please call me Tina. This will be my third year here at Cooke, and I feel privileged to work with Jennifer Bugar, who as our building leader sets the tone for collaboration and teaming second to none. We work with an inspiring staff of teachers, ancillary, and para educators who see the potential in each student and are creative enough to help them achieve that height.
My favorite part of my day is moving around the building visiting classrooms, interacting with, and supporting students and staff. I enjoy seeing the creative academic, social, and pre-vocational/vocational lessons that are happening as well as the work product displayed in the hallways.
I also enjoy meeting parents as we work together to create meaningful IEPs for students, celebrate our students at Open House and Parent-Teacher Conferences at Cooke, Hillside, or NHS, and working together to plan exciting and fun events at PTA meetings,
My door is usually open, and my light on if I am in my office. So if you are in the office dropping off or picking up, please come and introduce yourself! If my light is off and you need to speak with me, please ask Jeanne or Karen to page me.
It has been my pleasure to get to know all of the wonderful staff, students, and parents that make up the Cooke Community, and I look forward to another fabulous year!
