Miss Janet D. Cooke
I'll give you a moment to get over the shock that I've finally updated my webpage. It's been a little chaotic for me this year. For the first time in 18 years I moved classrooms. The Comet Pride Online and I are now located in Room 608. Looking forward to a year with lots of new things.
