Mrs. Jody Jenkins
Welcome to my first grade classroom! I am so excited about this upcoming school year! This will be my 18th year at Cox Elementary. I taught for 2 years in first grade, then I was the Instructional Specialist for 6 years here at Cox. In 2012, I returned to the first grade classroom. It has been such a wonderful experience to return to the classroom and be able to work with children again!
I am beginning my 33rd year of teaching. I taught Pre-K for 6 years in a private school and then I taught kindergarten in McKinney for 9 years. I moved to Wylie ISD to begin my teaching here in 2004.
I have been happily married for 47 years to my wonderful husband, Rickie. He is a minister at the Campbell Road church of Christ. We have worked with this church for 30 years and it has truly been a blessing. We have two beautiful children and son-in-law and daughter-in-law; our son Codie and his wife Kody and our daughter Kam and her husband Chris. They have given us 8 precious grandchildren! Wow, what a blessing!
I look forward to a rewarding year with these precious children as we work towards success for each and every one! Thank you for entrusting your child with me. Let's work together to make this year the best ever!
