Vikki Cole, 4th and 5th Grader Teacher

B.S. – University of Tennessee, Chattanooga

Vikki Cole spent much of her childhood growing up in Chattanooga. She is a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a B.A. in Communications (emphasis in journalism) and minors in both American history and literature.

While this is her sixth year teaching at Brainerd Baptist School, she has previously taught in Destin, Florida, and Chattanooga. She and her husband, Barry, have been married 25 years and have two children, Ellis (21) and Jed (19).

When she is not teaching, she enjoys reading, traveling, watching hockey, hiking, snorkeling and ice skating. She and her husband owned a Snorkeling charter boat for a number of years in Destin before moving back to Chattanooga in 2005. While she enjoys the mountains of Tennessee and the family it contains, she and Barry plan a coastal or island retirement.

Her favorite verse is: Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind – Romans 12:2
