    4th Grade Teacher
    Hi! My name is AJ Cook. I'm a 4th Grade teacher and I've been working at Richardson Elementary for the past 7 years now! I also worked for a year as a Full-time Emergency Sub in District 622 for K-12 the year before I was hired at Richardson. I've taught summer school for a couple of summers and I've also worked at a few Summer Sampler Camps and Leadership Camp! So I've been around for a little while now.
    Before I got into teaching, I traveled for a living doing Marketing Promotions for various marketing companies and enjoyed traveling around the entire country from 2001-2008. I still work for a marketing company during the summer where I get to help out with the MN Vikings, MN Gophers and the MN United FC!
    My other passion is coaching! I have coached multiple teams in multiple sports for the past 25 years!! I've coached High School Football and High School Track at De LaSalle High school from 1998-2001. We won State in Football in 1999! We also sent a 4x4 team in the 400 to State in 2001! The last 4 years, I coached Traveling Basketball for N. St. Paul for the 7th and 8th Gr teams. Our 8th Gr team won 3rd Place at State a couple years ago!! I've also been enjoying coaching my son's Rec and Traveling soccer, baseball and basketball teams in Oakdale and N. St. Paul for the past 10 yrs. Right now I coach the N St Paul 8th Gr Traveling Basketball (we're currently 6-3!) and my son's U16/U17 North East United Soccer team!
    I really enjoy living and working in our District and it's all because of the kids and their families!! If you have any other questions, feel free to email me or call me.  I will get back to you as soon as I can!
