Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education with a Math/Science concentration Masters Degree in Reading Education

Mrs. Kelly Fish

I have taught for 19 years and have spent my entire career at Cooper.  I began in first grade where I taught for 17 years. I looped up to 2nd grade and stayed there for 2 years.  This year I am looping up to 3rd with many of my 2nd grade virtual students from last school year.   I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Chapel Hill (with a Math & Science concentration) and a Master's Degree in Reading Education from ECU.  I have been married for 18 years and have 2 children that also attend(ed) Cooper (Bella-6th grade & Gabe-4th grade). I grew up in Rochester, NY and moved to NC after graduating high school.  North Carolina is definitely my forever home and the beach is my happy place! 

  • Welcome!

    I hope everyone had a GREAT summer!  We are going to have such an AWESOME third grade year!  I would like to give a very warm welcome to all my students...
