Cooke, April (Media/Library)
Hello Estes Friends and Families,
I am a Western North Carolina native from Maggie Valley in neighboring Haywood County.
I love our mountains, our folklore, and our traditions. I enjoy reading of course, going to the lake with my family, vacationing, snow skiing, and shopping :-).
I earned my under-grad degree in Industrial Technology from Western Carolina University then worked ten years as a Senior Product Engineer at Steelcase, Inc. in Fletcher, NC. When our wood plant closed I was also pregnant with my one and only son, Justin. My husband, Matt, and I decided education was the way to go so I could have the same breaks as our son.  I got my teaching certification through NC Teach at Western Carolina University and started at Estes as a part time reading tutor with 3rd grade. I progressed to being the Computer Lab Instructor and am now the Media Coordinator.  I obtained my Masters Degree in Library Science from Appalachian University.
