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 seventh year teaching at Brainerd Baptist School, she has previously taught in Destin, Florida, and Chattanooga. She and her husband, Barry, have been married 26 years and have two children, Ellis (22) and Jed (20). Ellis is a pediatric nurse at Erlanger Children’s hospital and Jed is majoring in pastoral studies at Carson Newman University.

When she is not teaching, she enjoys reading, traveling, watching hockey, hiking, snorkeling and ice skating. She and her husband took a trip to Scotland this summer where she truly enjoyed seeing so many places she has studied historically (for both academics and family tree research).

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