I was born in New Jersey and grew up in Maryland. My family and I moved down to North Carolina in 2006 and I attended NC State. GO PACK! :-) I was a substitute teacher at Cooper for years and then, after 3 years in New York, came back to make Cooper my home for good!
I look forward to seeing everyone at Open House on Thursday, August 22nd. It is from 4:30p to 6:30p.
See you all there!
