Third Grade Teacher
Compass Elementary

Hi!  My name is Tina Cochran, and I have been a teacher for the Platte County R-3 School District since 1997.  My husband and I have two boys.  We also have two dogs named Snickers and Stella.  I am originally from Des Moines, IA.  I went to college at Northwest Missouri State University and earned my Master's Degree from Webster University.   My first year at Platte County I worked at the middle and high schools as well as with 4th and 5th graders, so I was on the go.  In 1998 I began teaching 4th grade at Siegrist Elementary.  I began teaching at Compass Elementary when it first opened.  I love working with kids and teaching 3rd grade!!!
