Welcome to Our Smart Cookie Classroom!
We are in for a terrific school year. My name is Mary Ellen Cook and I am starting my 27th year at the LBI School District. I have my degree in Special Education and a Masters degree in Regular Education. I have been married to my husband Tim for 36 years. We are the very proud parents of two sons, Matthew and Michael. Tim is a 20 year Veteran of the United States Coast Guard and we were lucky to be stationed in Barnegat Light and loved it so much we decided to stay. I was very fortunate to sub for a year and then I was hired at the LBI Elementary School. I was a teacher at LBI for 15 years and then I was moved to EJ to teach Kindergarten. I have always loved every job I have had but I can honestly tell you that Kindergarten is the best!!
I am thrilled every day to come in and see the excitement on the kids faces. My job is to make sure that your little ones love coming to school because that love for learning will carry them through for the rest of their education.
Thank you for being part of my Smart Cookie Class!
