Welcome to Tarrant Elementary School! My name is Kristi Cocke and I am delighted to serve as the Assistant Principal at TES. I have 14 years of experience as an educator. I have taught 4th grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarten, and been an Instructional Coach. I received a Collaborative Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education from The University of Montevallo, a Master’s degree in Teaching with an emphasis in Reading from Grand Canyon University, and a Master’s degree in Instructional Leadership from The University of West Alabama.
I am originally from Connecticut but currently live in Pelham with my husband Jimmy. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren.
I am honored and humbled to serve this community, your child(ren) and this remarkable faculty and staff. I look forward to a fantastic year of making lasting memories and building meaningful friendships. And thank you in advance for sharing your precious child(ren) with us.
Kristi Cocke, Assistant Principal
