Ms. Clarice Williams
I am a fourth grade teacher at Cooper Academy. This is my third year at Cooper Academy. I have been a teacher for Johnston County Public schools for 6 years and teaching since 2001. Most of my career, I have taught 4th grade and I am excited to be back. I am a mother of three beautiful children and is orginally from Hartford, Connecticut. I am currently the math and science teacher. My team teacher, ELA and Social studies, is Mr. Burbank. In our classroom we believe in hard work, purposeful practice, learning from our mistakes, and showing respect to others. I love learning, hopefully you do too!

We are sharing information with our families about the Targeted Support & Improvement State Level guidance for schools who have underperformed on state-wide assessments during the past few years. Of course, last year we did not have End-of-Grade testing in North Carolina due to COVID-19 school closures.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
