Mrs. Ann Cook

Role: 2nd Grade Teacher

Share something no one knows about you: I have been teaching second grade at Givens(Computer School) for 30 years. It's the only school I have ever taught at and second grade is the only grade I have ever taught. This shows how much I love this school and how much I love second graders!:) Oh, I am also a HUGE St. Louis Blues Fan! Let's Go Blues!!

My Family: I am one of six children. My twin brother and I are the youngest. My mom is my hero, my biggest cheerleader, and my role model. I am married to Ed Cook who is an engineer at Boeing. We have two kids, Kyle and Sarah. Kyle graduated from Mizzou (May 2020) and is currently working as a day trader. Sarah is a junior at Mizzou and is studying to be an elementary school teacher. Ed and I are very blessed. I love going on walks, yoga, hanging out with family and friends, boating, and reading a good book.

What I am looking forward to: I am looking forward to expanding our Givens Staff, student body, and community. I am also looking forward to collaborating with a new second-grade teacher!
