|Sixth Grade - Here We Come!
back to the "new and improved" Cooper, to sixth grade and to your new
classroom. This begins my ninth year here and my 29th year of teaching.

taught both fifth and sixth grades. I feel fortunate to love what I do -
teach. Cooper is a home, full of caring and passionate staff. I look
forward to my days here and am proud of being a part of this wonderful
am most enthusiastic about literacy. My goal is to enrich your child's
literate world, help them communicate effectively, encourage them to
find and use their voice, to make a difference and to become leaders in
their own way.

teaching partner, Mr. Lietz. He is an exciting and well loved teacher in
the school. We work hard at making your child's safety a priority.
my husband, we have two children. Jay, 25 and Paige, 21. Chloe, our
devoted dog, is my walking buddy and Lucky, our aging cat soaks up
whatever sun spot she can find. Leisurely, I most love to read, read, and
read some more. My public library is one of my favorite places to be.
Additionally, being in my kitchen among pots and pans, measuring cups,
spices and cookbooks is another favorite place. I enjoy scrap booking and using my creative energies, listening to a wide variety of music and spending time with family and friends.
