Hello! My name is McKenzie Cobb, and this is my first year at MCES. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and an endorsement in English language arts. I am looking forward to sharing my passion for the Catholic faith, reading, and writing with the students.
I will be using Google Classroom this year. I will post all announcements, updates, and assignments on Google Classroom (as long as it does not infringe on copyright laws). I will post the dates of when assignments are due on this page, but students should be checking Google Classroom for updates and announcements regularly.
