My Email: Jennie.cooper@washk12.org

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education k-8 and my Master's Degree in Learning and Technology from Western Governors University. I value education and will continue learning for the rest of my life. 
My favorite thing to teach is reading. The accomplishment and independence kids get from learning to read is unparalleled. I love watching them start to realize that they can learn anything they want through reading. 
I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have three kids, and we love to have adventures outdoors. I love reading in my free time. My favorite genre is Nonfiction. I especially love reading about history. 
The fabulous Rita Pearson said, "Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be." I strive to be one of those people for my students. I love being a teacher!
