Mrs. Kori Wood

Hi! My name is Kori Wood and I am so excited to be joining the fifth grade team at Hunters Creek this year. I will be teaching Math and Science alongside Ms. Terry, who will be teaching ELA and Social Studies. This is my third year teaching, and my second year in fifth grade. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Greenville University in 2020, where I also ran cross country and track. My husband and I met in college and stayed close to our college town in southern Illinois until he joined the Marine Corps in early 2021. We now live here in Jacksonville with our 5-month-old daughter, Chloe, and our two dogs, Duke and Daisy!

My biggest goal is to always create a safe, welcoming classroom environment where I will foster each student's love of learning through interactive and collaborative learning opportunities!
