Mrs. Cook's Class

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Meet the Teacher:

Hi! My name is Tirza Cook and I teach Kindergarten here at Howard-Ellis Elementary School. This is my fourth year teaching, my third year in Niles. I'm happy to be part of such a great school district! I grew up in Berrien Springs and received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Andrews University. I recently got married to a wonderful man (and fellow teacher). When not in my classroom, you can usually find me reading, camping, painting, hanging out with my cats, or trying out new recipes. 

Philosophy of Teaching:

I believe all children are special and capable of amazing things. I enjoy inspiring a child's natural curiosity and getting kids excited about learning. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and their families. Together, we will make this school year great!

Please feel free to contact me at any time!
