Ms. Michelle

  

Hi there!

I’m super excited to be at Cooper Academy again for the 2020- 2021 school year! I have worked with preschool aged students for more than fourteen years and going on year Eighth in the public school system. I have a bachelor's degree from East Carolina University and many years later obtained a Licensure Only in BK (Birth through Kindergarten). Arrgh! Go Pirates!

I spend my days at Cooper Academy doing what I love; laughing, learning, and having fun alongside our youngest learners. My personal teaching philosophy is based on children being competent and capable drivers of their learning. I am very passionate about providing an environment where children feel confident and secure.  

I find the early years to be such an exciting time in a family’s life and I truly enjoy sharing the many trials and triumphs that we all experience as parents. I have three wonderful children; Brannon, who’s 20, Christian is 18, and Taylor is 16. I also have a pretty amazing husband, Carlos. Clayton has been our home for the past 21 years.

Thank you for welcoming me into your child's life and heart! I cannot wait to meet them!

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
