Mrs. Cochran

I am Mrs. Cochran, 1 of currently 7 2nd Grade teachers at Hammett Bowen Elementary.  I have been teaching since 2001 and have experience in Kdg. (10 yrs), 1st (1 year), 2nd (5 years), 3rd (1 year), and 4th (2 years) grades.  I graduated from Saint Leo University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and am certified and highly qualified for K-6 and ESOL Endorsed.  I love my job...getting to know and love my students and their families.  I strongly dislike not coming to school.  I look forward to those smiling faces and virtual hugs everyday!  So please make sure they are at our meetings or my heart will be so sad!

I am happily married with 4 children collectively and 7 grandchildren which take up most of our free time!  The rest of my time is spent on our farm raising a small herd of cows (which I proudly name), some travelling, and searching for good food (at restaurants or just recipes to try).  I enjoy DIY projects and having family gatherings.  Things seem to be centered around food, go figure, lol.
