Mrs. Cole

My name is Lisa Cole, and I am so excited to be a part of the Brookwood Family of Educators and the 4th grade team. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and my Gifted Endorsement, and I am currently working on my ESOL endorsement. I previously taught 5th grade and 3rd grade in Barrow County for the past four years. I look forward to many future years in Forsyth County! My family and I love this district and have made our home here. My husband, Scott, is the Science Olympiad State Director and a teacher at Forsyth Central High School, and my son attends school at Forsyth Central as well. We truly believe that education and family go hand-in-hand, and my focus at Brookwood is to teach and care for every student in my family classroom.
