Karen Cook

Fifth Grade Digital Teacher

Hi! My name is Karen Cook and this is my 5th year at Yargo.  This is my 28th year teaching and my love of teaching grows each and every year.  My husband, Edwin, and I have been happily married for 29 years.  We have two grown children, Morgan and Maddie.  Morgan and her husband Matthew have been married 2 ½ years and live in Raleigh, NC.  Maddie is getting married to her fiancé Kyle in August 2020.  They will live in the Suwanee area.  I am so excited for both of my girls as they have both found a love of teaching too!

I look forward to teaching 5th graders in person as well as digitally.  I strive to provide a safe, challenging and supportive space where students can be themselves, make mistakes and work hard to make corrections.  It is my hope that students become inquisitive, motivated, and develop a desire to learn and face challenges head on.   

In my spare time, I enjoy my family.  We love to get together, eat, and play games.  I am also a fanatic about taking pictures.   I enjoy putting albums together once I take pictures.
