Team Oak Language Arts

Welcome to Team Oak Language Arts!

My name Mrs. Cookson, and I am excited to be working with all of you this school year! This will be nineteenth year of teaching. I taught middle school Language Arts and high school English for 14 years in Massachusetts before moving to New Hampshire. This will be my fifth year teaching at Woodbury. For the previous four years, I taught eighth grade Language Arts on Team Jefferson. I currently live in Manchester with my husband and our dog, Bessie.

I am eager to meet all of you! We are going to have a great year!
