Mrs. Gibbs

I am Andrea Cockrell-Gibbs. I graduated from Miles College Undergrad with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2009.  This is my 14th year teaching. I have taught pre-k, kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and now my passion is 6th grade.  I love reading and I enjoy learning new ways and techniques to teach the science of reading. I am currently pursuing my Master of Education in English Second Language at UAB.  I have two biological children, De'andrea (Greggory) Cockrell-Hudson, who is married. They blessed me with a beautiful granddaughter, Bella Rose Hudson, who is currently a kindergartner at TES.  A 13-year-old son, Torrence Gibbs , two beautiful stepdaughters, Jahcelyn 21, and Zahra Hale 17. 
I am an enthusiastic person and I have a positive outlook on life. I love my job and I get a great sense of achievement from seeing my students develop and grow as individuals. I do not take the opportunity I have been given to shape the minds of our future lightly.  "At any cost is the motto I live by" I will do whatever it takes to reach my students where they are and make a difference in their lives. I love teaching and there is nothing in this world I would rather do or be than an Educator.
