Administrative Assistant: Ms. Cory Butler, (610) 269-2420; 43004

Ms. Cole is driven by a passion for student success and seeks to engage stakeholders in thoughtful communication, advocacy, and establish partnerships which bolster the STEM Academy's collaborative vision.  Her diverse teaching and learning experiences span across the state of Pennsylvania, but her roots grow from Chester County.  After graduating from Great Valley High School, Ms. Cole attended Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA as a scholar athlete earning her B.A. in History/Pre-Law with a Spanish minor in 2003.  She expanded her undergraduate experience by studying Spanish language and history at Universidad Internacional in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  

Acknowledging her desire to work in the field of education prompted Ms. Cole to attend West Chester University where, in 2006, she earned her M.Ed. in Professional and Secondary Education.  She has since become a Pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project Fellow & Teacher Consultant.  In 2005 Ms. Cole secured a Social Studies teaching position with the Springfield School District in Delaware County, PA, serving as a high school educator and Department Manager for nine years before moving into the Dean of Students role at E.T. Richardson Middle School. She earned her Principal Certification from Drexel University in 2015.

With great enthusiasm Mrs. Cole joined the administrative team at the Downingtown STEM Academy in 2017 and loves helping extraordinary students do extraordinary things!
