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!
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...

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.
