Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education with a Math/Science concentration Masters Degree in Reading Education
Mrs. Kelly Fish
I have taught first grade for 18 years, all of which have been at Cooper. This year will be my first year in second grade. I am entirely excited to loop up with my first graders and observe first-hand their growth during this unique process. I earned 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 16 years and have 2 children that also attend Cooper (Bella-4th grade & Gabe-2nd 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!
