Mr. Rich Coker
Welcome to Mr. Coker's webpage! I have been teaching at TEC for the last 2 years. This year, I am teaching 9th grade Contemporary Global Issues and 12th grade AP English Literature. Before coming to TEC, I taught in the Lakewood / South Tacoma area for 6 years.
I grew up in Pennsylvania and have lived in Washington for the last ten years. I received my teaching certification and my Master's degree at The Evergreen State College, whose program focuses on multicultural anti-bias education.
I plan on using Canvas, the district's learning management system, to assign and collect work, administer summative and formative assessments and communicate with students about their progress. The grades in Canvas are not official. I will enter summative and certain formative assessments into the gradebook in Illuminate, since those grades are official.
