About Robin

Hey There! My name is Robin Hancock. I am the Reading Intervention Teacher under the Read to Achieve grant at Summer Shade Elementary in Metcalfe County, KY. I am originally from Maryland. I grew up on a farm and ended up going to the University of Kentucky to get a degree in Ag Economics. Later, I married and moved to southern Kentucky. I went back to college because I wanted a career I could really put my heart into and I found that in the career of teaching. I love it! I attended Lindsey Wilson College where I attained my certification in Elementary Education. As well, I am currently working on my Masters Degree to be a Reading and Writing Specialist. In addition, I recently achieved a certification in Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education (IECE). I also have a wonderful husband, Kirby, of 11 years and two boys of my own, Hayden and Hudson which I dearly love.

I am headed into my sixth year of teaching and I am really excited to utilize the new reading and teaching strategies that I am learning in my Masters classes!!!
I look forward to everyday and consider my students "my special gifts"!

As well, I enjoy finding and reading children's books, because they provide children with a way to learn life lessons through applications that children can relate too. However, in my extra time I also read novels as a part of a book study. I do not prefer one genre of adult literature over another, yet I like to read books that are suggested to me by friends.
