Teacher Bio - Elizabeth Cook's students comprise the school's student energy team, which continually assesses energy usage at the school. Under Cook's direction, the student team has saved Northern Elementary thousands of dollars over the last few years. For her annual class energy project, Cook's students recently conducted an energy audit of Sadieville, Ky.'s city hall and police station, and made recommendations on how to save energy. Cook was also instrumental in Northern Elementary becoming a 2013 National Green Ribbon School – one of only three in Kentucky recognized with this U.S. Department of Education distinction last year.
