I grew up in a small town, Eufaula, Alabama. I attended Auburn University and have been teaching for the past twelve years. I chose to become a teacher because of my love for children and my desire to make positive impacts in their lives. I have been married to my husband Kyman for 7 years and have two sweet and beautiful daughters named Claire and Stella. Claire is three and Stella is fourteen months old. I feel that being a parent has given me an even greater appreciation of children. Our family likes to travel, bake, play outside together, read books and just enjoy spending time with each other. I started teaching at Cogburn Wood when it opened. I love teaching kindergarten! In my opinion it is the best grade ever! I love to hear all the fascinating stories my students have to share with me. I enjoy working with the children, staff, and parents of Cogburn Woods Elementary School.

My name is Jodi Luxton, and teaching is my passion! Upon completing my degree at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, I taught for seven years at Bainbridge Elementary. In the summer of 1999 my family (husband Rob and our three daughters - Hannah, Addison and Shelby) arrived in Alpharetta and I began my Fulton County teaching career. I have been teaching for fifteen years and I look forward to the opportunity to work with such a talented and valued staff and supportive community! It is my pleasure to be a part of the Cogburn Woods family. The children that enter my classroom door are given opportunities to explore learning and draw meaning from hands-on experience, role-play, and innovative instruction. My classroom environment is child-centered, and fosters life-long learning. It is a safe and creative atmosphere that allows each student to value himself as well as others.
