Amy Cooksey Assistant Director, Preschool
Amy grew up in Alvarado and graduated from Alvarado High School. She began working in the child care profession in 2001 when her youngest daughter, Jordan, was in preschool at FUMC. Amy started out as a substitute teacher, but quickly took on a more permanent role in the classroom as a Pre-K teacher for 5 years and as an Assistant Director for another 4 years.
In 2011, Amy made the decision to stay home for a few years to help in her husband’s business and attend to some family needs. However, in 2014 the opportunity came for Amy to be able to come back to her Assistant Director role working alongside former co-workers Cari Foster and Laura Finley.
Amy and her husband Kevin reside in Burleson and have 2 daughters, Barbara and Jordan. Barbara is a nurse at a nearby hospital and she and her husband, Rendon, gave Amy and her husband a new title of “Nana and Pops” when they had baby boy Cameron in November 2016. Their youngest daughter, Jordan, will graduate from BHS in May of 2017 and has plans to attend Texas State in the fall.
