This will be my fourth year at Geneva County Elementary! I was very honored and blessed last year to be chosen as Teacher of the Year by my colleagues. I am looking forward to another year teaching 4th grade Reading. I can't wait to see how much my students will grow this year!
My name is Kendell Coker. I am proud to say that I grew up in Geneva County. I am a 13 year graduate of Slocomb High School. I graduated in 2004. I am married to my husband Jesse, and we have one daughter. Her name is Charlianna and she is 2 years old.
Teaching is my passion and I know that I have been called to teach the children of Hartford. I am passionate about seeing each one of my students succeed! I believe that each child can learn given the right environment and opportunity. It is my goal to make the classroom safe and inviting for students to share and learn. Some students might think of me as Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus because I want my students to experience as much hands-on-activities as possible to make real world connections. If I can bring what we’re learning about to the classroom, I absolutely will. I hope when students leave my classroom, not only will they have grown academically but they will have also grown into a better student, friend, and citizen.
When I’m not at school you can usually find me at home playing with my sweet little girl. I also enjoy making pinterest projects and cooking. On Saturdays during football season you can hear me yelling, "Roll Tide Roll!” I know that this will be an amazing year! I can't wait to see what is in store for my fourth graders this year!
