About our Principal

Dear Cooke Magnet Parents/Guardians:

My name is Dr. Stephanie Jensen and this is my 8th year as the Principal at Cooke Magnet School.  I am very passionate about education and look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with an engaging, rigorous, standards-based, high-quality educational experience. I also look forward to continuing to expose students to the power on the Fine Arts to enhance both personal and academic development.  As the parent of two children, ages 11 and 13, I understand the importance of strong home-school communication.  I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s needs are met academically as well as emotionally.

This is my 23rd year in Waukegan District 60.  Prior to joining the Cooke Magnet Team, I was an Assistant Principal for eight years and a classroom teacher for eight years.  My academic background includes an Educational Doctorate in Educational Leadership, Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership, a Master’s Degree in Teaching and Leadership, a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in English as a Second Language.  I truly value the power of education at the primary level as well as instilling the importance of higher education in our children.  I look forward to working closely with the Cooke Magnet community to guarantee that our students have the best educational experience possible.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this important role.  Please contact me at anytime if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share.

Dr. Stephanie Jensen
