Staff Spotlight: Mrs. Alexandra Cooke

May 21, 2023
By St. Serra Marketing Communications

Current position at St. Serra: Health Room and IT Assistant

Years at St. Serra: 2

What she enjoys most: “Sharing my faith with students, parents, and staff, and the school-wide prayers that connect our community daily.”

Family Life and Favorite Traditions

“I've been married for 11 years to my husband Brian, who is an elevator technician.  We have two Serra Bears. My son is in Kindergarten and wants to be a ”Space Force Guardian." My daughter is in third grade and this is her sixth year at St. Serra; she is an Irish Dance competitor and aspiring engineer. As a family we love to hike and tent camp. My favorite of our family traditions is tent camping on Thanksgiving. Nothing like a turkey dinner cooked over an open fire. We root for our Chicago teams; Chicago Sky, Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, and Bulls. I am a diehard fan for all of them!"

Where did you go the last time you travelled?

"This spring our family travelled for the first time since 2019 and explored our heritage in Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher was the most unforgettable thing we saw and we are eager to visit Ireland again."

Fun Facts!

  • “I received an AA in Teacher Education and Paralegal Certification from Irvine Valley College.”
  • “My husband has serviced St. Serra's elevators in the past.”
  • “My son is named after a beloved second baseman who played for the Chicago Cubs in the 80s and 90s.”


What are three things people would be surprised to find out about you?

  1. “I have lived in four states: California, Illinois, Washington, and Florida.”
  2. “One of my favorite classes in college was on Contracts and Torts.”
  3. “I have a pacemaker.”
