Jennifer Cofone, Reading Intervention Teacher
When I think about the past twenty-six years with Frederick County Public Schools so many friends have passed through my classroom and have become part of my school family. First as a classroom teacher and most recently as the reading intervention teacher, I feel blessed to share in your child's education. From students to parents to interns and volunteers, that sense of family grows each year. Seeing familiar faces in the halls as they continue their education at Centerville, further solidifies that feeling of family that began when we first opened CES ten years ago. Watching each shining star grow and learn in their reading and writing skills continues to be a source of joy for me professionally.
Personally, my own joy becomes more complete by spending time with my husband and daughter Marissa. Her father and I are amazed each day as she takes on the challenges of middle school. Her smile warms our hearts and she adds so many adventures to our lives.
As we navigate through this school year, I look forward to continuing to use my educational background and experiences to enrich the lives of those shining stars entrusted to my care. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Boston College and a Master's Degree in Elementary Math and Science from Hood College. I have continued to enrich that formal education with subsequent reading course work over the past 26 years. While that time has flown, I look forward to seeing the shining faces of new friends each day and watching those old friends go on to new adventures in learning as they depart CES for middle school.
