Ms. Shelly Cook
Shelly Cook (Team Leader) has a Bachelor’s Degree in English and two Master’s Degrees: English Literature and Theological Studies. Shelly began teaching right out of college and taught ELA for 30 years. Two of the districts in which she taught were Fort Worth ISD (1998-2003) and Dallas ISD (2003-2009), both urban districts with high-needs students. While in Dallas, she became a Lead English teacher for the LAMPSSS high schools in inner city Dallas (Lincoln, Adamson, Madison, Pinkston, Spruce, Samuell, South Oak Cliff), schools with a tradition of high dropout rates and teacher attrition. Shelly has been a trainer of English Language Arts since the early 90s and became a Jane Schaffer Writing Program trainer in 2011. She is now retired from the classroom and is a full-time presenter, trainer, and mentor for LEC.
