Welcome to my classroom!
My name is Elissa Cooper and I am very excited to be teaching Priority Preschool at Riggs. I am looking forward to seeing my returning students and meeting my new students
I received both my B.A. Ed and my M.Ed. from ASU in Elementary education with an emphasis in Early Childhood. I love teaching young children, and have taught all ages within the Early Childhood range, from toddlers to second graders.
You will find my classroom environment to be very positive with an emphasis on making good choices. I encourage children to become independent learners and members of a classroom community. My goal is to foster independence and a love of learning to ensure success in school now and in the future.
I live in Gilbert, and and I have two sons, Sam, 17, and Ben, 14. My daughter Ariel is 24 and attends veterinary school at Washington State University. I have two cats and for relaxation I like to read, walk, and practice Yoga.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children!
