Cookie moved to Phoenixville from Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania almost five years ago. She has been a member of the Phoenixville Area Time Bank for four of those years. Cookie's experience with PATB has allowed her to make her community a better place and in turn, she has also received the help that she and her family has needed. A group of PATB members helped her move, recreated her kitchen in her new home, and got a fresh coat of paint on her walls, all while her husband was recovering after an extensive hospital stay.
Eleanor “Cookie” Adam is a board member and is on the Events Committee of PATB. She has spent her professional career as a school teacher. As a teacher her goal was to make learning fun. She believes that creating stimulating and engaging lessons are pivotal to a student’s academic success which is why she makes her classroom an exciting environment for learning to hold the students’ fascination and to keep them motivated. She also believes that teaching not only involves the teacher and student, but the community as well. Communicating with the school community and families provided her with the tools to engage in PATB and Phoenixville community. As a board member and a member of the Events Committee her teaching experience blends nicely with creating socials and activities.
When Cookie isn’t working with the PATB Event Committee to make scones for a Strategic Planning meeting, she enjoys camping, the beach, scuba diving, museums, and sports with her children and husband, Chuck. Cookie also enjoys reading, walking, and spending time with their two Yorkies.
