Mr. Andrew Cook
My name is Andrew Cook and I am a 5th grade teacher James Walker Elementary. I graduated from Blue Springs South High School in 2005 and then traveled to Warrensburg to attend the University of Central Missouri. Graduated from UCM with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in the Fall of 2009. After I graduated, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music industry. I worked at Red Bull Records in both their marketing and music syncing departments. I then picked up a job working as an assistant tour manager that took me all over the US and to SE Asia. When I was working in LA, I studied improv comedy at the world famous Upright Citizen's Brigade theater and was a background actor on an episode of Raising Hope and Mike & Molly. Missing Kansas City, I moved back in the Winter of 2012 and began hosting a daily music radio show on KCradio.com. I decided to get back into teaching in the spring of 2014 and have been at JWE since then.
When I am not teaching, I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends, supporting the Chiefs and Jayhawks, going to concerts, going on hikes/walks, and traveling. I also may have a small obsession with Star Wars!
