Where learning is concerned…

Who is Tricia Cook? In short, I’m neurodivergent and have experienced learning with trauma; therefore, being in education  and developing my program is my biggest accomplishment. I am very passionate about learning and teaching. Right now, I am the leader and head of education for an international DEI group. I am a difference for others, so they can be successful for themselves and their families, and hoping to alleviate some of the struggles that I had in education. For this #DEI group, I am also writing a curriculum with my team on peace education and moderating professional panels on the topic of health & wellness in schools and institutions. Similarly, as an independent educational coach and consultant, I give with my program intensive professional development opportunities. I provide individuals with the tools to become skilled facilitators of complex conversations, fostering strategic relationships, flexible thinking skills, and the conceptualization and implementation of collaborative initiatives.  I also work with all stakeholders, using my own program that I developed which focuses on constructive engagement based on student, “whole child” observation(s), inspired by: Maria Montessori, Neville Lancelot Goddard, Benjamin Bloom, Peter Levine, Conrad E. and Cohen B., Dr. J. Puleo & Dr. L. Horowitz, Howard Garner, Dr. Bradley Nelsen, Hans Berger, Jean Piaget, Lev  Vygotsky, Grolnick, W. & Kurowski, C., and Erik Erickson. Like yourself, I feel these people above have made a huge contribution to education, and they have really influenced my program; Yet, I believe my program is revolutionary, because it involves education and child development including the mind, body, and spirit. For instance, I am coaching a teacher in New Jersey and helping to promote a neuropedagogy similar to my own. She is a self-contained 5-8th grade special ed. teacher, who is using my program, and her principle, paraprofessional, and herself are seeing progress in her students. Another big accomplishment, not only is she doing a case study for using my program, I  have three other schools who are also using my program and doing case studies.   


After twenty-five years of being in education, #education, I provide tutoring, consulting, and coaching #coaching on dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences. Over the last #TheLast 15 years, I’ve observed an increasing amount of affective, behavioral, sensorial, cognitive, physical, mental, and spiritual difficulties and differences along with an increased number of children #NumberOfChildren being medicated, misdiagnosed, or going undiagnosed; Therefore, I have developed a neuropedagogy that includes my observations and evaluations that looks at the “whole person” using empirical science and holistic wisdom. Where learning is concerned, the whole person is important because people are different and so many learn differently. My neuropedagogy allows neuroscience, psychology, and education to come into an authentic practice. It really looks at how we all process information differently in space and interconnected time; in brief, we are all wired with dissimilarity for which each neural pathway is connected differently to process the same information that we all can receive. My current practice is a holistic approach to being and aims to learn how to stimulate new zones of the brain, and increase self-directed neuroplasticity, and create connections (neuropathways) for learning to be successful. Furthermore, it is targeted at naturally stimulating the brains of all types of learners, not only those with students who have learning disabilities.

My interest is in helping parents and teachers to understand learning and behavioral challenges and to love learning again. I graduated from Auburn in ECE in 1998. I have been a Montessori teacher here in Birmingham for almost 12 years and have lived in Birmingham for the past 19 years. As an early childhood teacher, I want continue to grow and develop as a constant learner. In 2012, I graduated from Secondary Education with a P-12 Reading Specialist certification the University of Alabama. As a Reading Specialist, I train on diversity and literacy development; I have a specialized knowledge of assessment and diagnosis that is vital for developing, implementing, and evaluating your literacy and neurodiversity behavioral, character development programing. Also, I have varying experiences designing instruction and environments for Montessori and Non-Montessori (OSR-Pre-K) environments. Therefore, I can consult for any environment or setting! In 2013, I attained my highly qualified status in ECE and Reading. In 2013, I also got my Orton-Gillingham AA tutor certification. I currently tutor full-time along with consulting. I have actually been tutoring since 2003. Along with other independent tutoring/interventionist experiences, I have brought dozens of students from an emergent to an advanced reading level! In addition to tutoring, I have provided the reading strengths and needs of my students and share that information to classroom teachers, parents, specialized teachers, and other stakeholders.  Lastly, I have also been a trainer/presenter, since 2008 and really enjoy this aspect of my career. As an experienced trainer, I have trained on many topics including: literacy (the five components), classroom management, positive discipline, diversity character development, Montessori Philosophy, policies and procedures, child development, and Alabama's Pre-k. Take note: Schools and families are desperately looking for an alternative type of affordable multi-sensory, hands-on, and interesting instruction. Currently, I am training and interested in writing on the following topics: A Comparison of Pre-K to Kindergarten; Adolescent Literacy (7th+); Assessment; Developing Readers; Children’s Literature; Classroom Management Techniques; Comprehension; Montessori Philosophy; Environmental Print & Early Writing; Family Attachment; Language and Literacy; Outdoor Classroom; Poetry Writing (7th+); Positive Guidance; Fine-motor Development; Cursive Writing; Creative Writing; Comprehension: Study Skills/Test Taking Strategies; Morphology; Phonics Instruction; Diversity Education; Neurodiversity Education; HandWriting; Reading Strategies; Best Practices P-12.
