Mrs. Kate Rizzo
Welcome to Mrs. Rizzo's third grade website! This is my 14th year as an elementary educator. I grew up in New Bern, NC and after attending UNCW for my undergraduate degree and ECU for my graduate degree, I began my teaching career at Cooper Elementary and have been here ever since! I love this school! I love our unique building, rich history, diverse culture, and dedicated and committed staff. But what I love most are the amazing Cooper families I have met over the years! I have experience in all elementary grades, and look forward to working with you and your child during one of the most exciting and challenging elementary grade levels!
