Originally from upstate New York, Mrs. Cook moved to Baltimore in 1989 with her husband, Mike, to attend MBC&S. A year later their son, Jon, was born. Over the next 18 years she enjoyed helping her husband coach CYA soccer and baseball, ministering to middle-schoolers in Club Friday, and participating in the Skeet Shoot for Missions fundraisers.
In 2003 Mrs. Cook earned a Bachelor’s degree from Notre Dame of Maryland University, majoring in writing and minoring in photography. She also earned a certificate in Communication and New Technology.
Mrs. Cook taught ninth and tenth grade English at GGCA in 2003-2005, and taught yearbook from 2003-2006. She is thrilled that some of her former students are now her fellow teachers.
From 2007-2017 the Cooks moved back to the Northeast to help their aging family members. During that time Mrs. Cook was a freelance journalist and photographer, a reporter for a daily newspaper and a supervisor in the banking and retail industries.
The Cooks returned to Baltimore in Fall, 2017 and Mrs. Cook began teaching at GGCA part time in January 2018. This school year she is utilizing all her skills as she teaches American Government, Economics, Creative Writing, Modern World History, computer, photography and yearbook.
Mrs. Cook is continuing her Bible College education and can often be found sitting with some of her students from the class of 2018 in class or the cafe.
In her spare time Mrs. Cook enjoys being with her husband and dogs, kayaking, biking and visiting her son, who is a teacher at GGIS in Budapest, Hungary. She and her son have a photography business, Two Cooks Photography.
