About Mrs. Cook

A little bit about Mrs. Cook...
          Well...I grew up right here in HB, around the corner from Hawes and was part of the amazing Hawes family as a child from kindergarten to 5th grade! I am so blessed to have come full circle and to once again be a part of this wonderful Hawes community! I absolutely love teaching in a school so near and dear to my heart and one that holds so many special memories! 
          I have always known that I wanted to teach and I feel incredibly honored to be a part of a profession that betters our world and the lives of young people. This will be my 15th year teaching here at Hawes. I received my degree and teaching credential from Long Beach State University and completed my Masters Degree in “Integrating Technology in the Classroom”. I also teach education classes through Azusa Pacific University and really enjoy helping our future teachers on their journey! 
          My sweet husband is a native surfer boy from Huntington Beach as well and has spent the last 14 years as a pastor and music director at Seaside Community Church. He has been sharing his gift of music and teaching for many years. We have 3 sweet little nuggets at home...My son Shawn is 9 and will be a third grader here at Hawes, my daughter Sunny just turned 7 and will be a Hawes Hawk this year in first grade, and my littlest daughter Daisy just turned 4 years old! We feel unbelievably blessed to get to be the parents of our 3 precious kiddos...Mr. Cook and I are enjoying every sweet AND chaotic moment on this incredible journey of parenthood!!! To add to the fun, we welcomed a new furry member of our family last Christmas...Jojo! She is a super loving and loyal pooch who has already been such a blessing to all of us! She will be turning 1 this September!  
    My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family! We LOVE going surfing as a family, taking Jojo to dog beach, discovering new hiking trails, playing outside, riding bikes, and our favorite....playing soccer!!!! I enjoy taking road trips, gardening, getting “crafty” and just spending as much time as I can with my friends and family!  
    I am looking forward to getting to know each one of you and to a wonderful year full of learning, laughing, and love!
