Mrs. About Me



My name is Kayla Brooke Cook and I am a kindergarten teacher at Griggs Road!  I am so blessed to be able to work with your child and your family over the next year!  I grew up in York, South Carolina and graduated from York Comprehensive High School.  I started my education path at the University of South Carolina where I graduated with a degree in early childhood education.  I then went on to Columbia College where I received my Masters degree in Divergent Learning.  I started my teaching career in the York School District where I taught kindergarten for several years.  I then came to the Clover School District where I taught first grade for two years and Pre-K for three years!  This will be my second year at Griggs Road in kindergarten!
