Madeline Cook
BA Elementary Education, University of Kansas
MA Curriculum, University of Kansas & Teaching

I taught first grade for four years in Basehor, Kansas while I worked towards my Master's degree at the University of Kansas, studying differentiation and implementing it in the classroom. When I discovered Rivendell School, I was thrilled to see a school effectively individualize for every student and foster a balanced whole-child approach to education. I believe that every child is unique and deserves a learning experience that addresses their individual strengths and needs.

I'm responsible for assisting families through the admissions process, providing tours of the school, coordinating the volunteer program, and helping facilitate fundraising events and promoting community outreach opportunities.

I grew up in the Kansas City area and moved to Colorado with my husband in 2016 to enjoy hiking, snowboarding, and all things outdoors. I love cooking, board gaming, traveling, and an occasional night of heartfelt karaoke.
