JoAnna Kai Cobb

Who is Mrs. Cobb?
That's me! My name is JoAnna Kai Cobb, and I teach 7th Grade Math at Bedford Middle School. I was a student in North Lawrence Community Schools for 13 years. After that, I received my Bachelors in Education from Indiana University. Additionally, I earned my Masters in Education from Olivet Nazarene University. The 2018-2019 school year is my 16th year teaching at Bedford Middle School. In my free time, I enjoy running, singing, quilting, geocaching, and reading.

What is your mission as a teacher?
My mission is to instill within my students a lifelong love of learning. I wish to communicate to all my students that, with the power of self-motivation coupled with curiosity, they can reach their full potentials and learn to achieve their dreams. I want to help all of my students believe in themselves, and thus believe that becoming a lifelong learner is possible for each one of them. I wish to show my students how to direct their innate curiosities, consequently finding their own motivation to learn. By empowering my students to become lifelong learners, they will not only hold the tools they need to be productive citizens of the world; they will also be content with themselves.
