Welcome to 6th grade! My name is Marcella Cochran, and I am excited to be your child's Science teacher this year. This is my 14th year of teaching and my 1st year at Cortina. I spent 7 years at Chaparral Elementary as a 3rd grade teacher and 5th grade math teacher. I spent 4 years in the Florence District teaching 3rd grade and 6th-8th grade math triage. I spent my first two years of teaching in the Mesa District teaching 1st-3rd grade. I have a B.S. and M.Ed. in Elementary Education, as well as my SEI endorsement, Reading endorsement, and Math as an approved area.
I have lived in Arizona my whole life and met Mr. Cochran while we were in band at Fremont Jr. High.
We have two boys, Xander (4th grade) and Ebrahm (1st grade), and 2 large dogs. Chase is a bullmastiff mix and we're not sure what breed Ranger is. We just know he and Chase are an amazing addition to our family.
I enjoy running, baking, reading with my boys, and watching all of the Marvel movies. Loki is my favorite Marvel character so far and Ebrahm has decided he's going to be Hulk/Spiderman/Ironman/Black Panther when he grows up. Xander has decided he's going to build all the suits and "toys/tools" for Ebrahm when he grows up. We'll see how long before they switch ideas!
I look forward to a fantastic year! Please contact me whenever needed at email@example.com or 480.279.7800.
