WHO AM I?
Hello everyone! My name is Gabriella Cook and I am a sixth grade World Cultures teacher here at Humble Middle School. I am thrilled to work here and with the great students of this community. I am so grateful to have, what I believe as, the best job in the world! I have worked as a teacher for 21 years and I love coming to work each day. I am excited to extend my expertise to you as I get to know each and every one of you better. Scroll down to learn a little bit more about me.
I received both a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Reading Degree and a Master of Education in Educational Administration Degree from Texas Southern University.
INTEREST AND HOBBIES
In my free time, I like to research various topics of interest. When I am not researching I try to make it a habit to stay active (e.g. nature walk, bike riding, etc.). Another all time favorite is crafting projects and assembling things. And how could I forget GARDENING! Yes, I love gardening!
I live 3 months on the continent of Europe. We'll talk more about that when we get to that continent in class.
REASON I BECAME A TEACHER
A part of me has always known that I was going to be a teacher. As I went through my academic career, I looked back on the values and ideas that had been instilled in me by school teachers. Once I realized the impact that a teacher had on me everything made since. I believe in our future and that children are our future. I became a teacher in hopes of affecting students the way I was affected when I was young. Providing them with more than just knowledge but a foundation, a respect for learning, growth and curiosity they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. I hope to do so and I can't wait to work with each and every one of you!
My philosophy of teaching is- Everyone Can. I believe when one is willing to do something, learn or grow then everyone can accomplish, everyone can succeed, everyone can grow. It is my philosophy that what students are exposed to and develop when they're younger can have an enormous impact on the rest of their lives and it is my mission to instill in my students the belief that they, too, can do anything they set their mind to do.
