Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Kathy Coskrey, the math coach at Nursery Road Elementary School--Arts Magnet. I received my BBA in Finance from East Tennessee State University and my MAT in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. I have served as a classroom teacher, course instructor for pre-service teachers, and field experience college supervisor.
I am married to Ernie Coskrey, and we have three children and a dog and cat. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy reading, walking, trying new recipes in the kitchen, and watching college sports.
Mathematics is my favorite subject, and I love seeing children get excited about math! I believe that all students can be empowered to embrace math in their lives as they grow as mathematicians and problem solvers.
“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.” – William Paul Thurston
