My name is Stefanie Cook and I am the school counselor of Madison Elementary. I spent the first part of my teaching career teaching ELA at the high school and middle school level. I came to Madison Elementary School in 2015, and I absolutely love working in the elementary world! This is a great time for students to build relationships and create a foundation as lifelong learners! I look forward to working with your students and helping them become the best versions of themselves!
