Jodi Cook | SCC English and Drama Instructor

Before I started taking classes at SCC, I spent years working in retail. I knew I didn't want to do that for the rest of my life and so I kept reaching for something to do. I got married and started a family not much after high school and so I never attended college.

I finally decided to enroll at SCC, and I loved it almost immediately. When my English instructor asked me what I wanted to do after SCC and I told him that I wanted his job. Six years later, I got it.

You can take a variety of courses at SCC and that is where you find your niche. It's how I found my love for literature. After I earned my AA from SCC, I knew I wanted to become a teacher so I transferred to Western Illinois University and earned my BA and then my MA.

Now as an instructor at SCC, I absolutely love helping students find their calling just like I did.
