Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Michael Cole. I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my first year as a Winecoff Leopard and seventh year teaching first grade. I love first grade because there is so much learning and growth that takes place. We learn to read, write, and become mathematicians and scientists. But, the best part is becoming friends and learning how to care for and support each other. This year may look different, but my purpose as your child’s teacher will remain the same.
I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have a passion for helping children learn and grow into lifelong learners. As a teacher, I believe that a child is most successful when there is a partnership between home and school. My goal is to partner with you and your child to make this first grade journey fun and successful. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
