About Ms. Cooper

Bio

Hailing from the small town of Chatom, AL, I am the product of the proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." I grew up in a small town community with my family where I learned the values of diligence, dignity, and integrity. More importantly, I learned the importance of taking advantage of every opportunity afforded to me to enhance my academic and career successes. As a child, I became an athlete and a musician. These two attributes have been the driving force of discipline on my path to excellence in my career.

 

Education

I am an Advanced Honors graduate of Washington County High School, where I was an active member of NHS, the marching and concert bands, and, also, captain of the basketball and softball teams. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in English Language Arts from the University of West Alabama, where I also received my Master's degree in Adult Continuing Education and most recently my Master's of Arts in Teaching English Language Arts.

 

Work Experience

Returning for my fifth year here at PPS, I began my career as an educator with the Mobile County Public School System in 2011 at E.T. Belsaw/ Mt. Vernon School. During my tenure at Belsaw, I taught English Language Arts grades 6-8. I, also, served as Department Chair, Middle School Teacher Team Leader, 8th Grade sponsor, Athletic Director, and Head Coach of the volleyball and boys and girls' basketball teams.

While serving at PPS, I am honored to have been selected as Phillips Preparatory's Teacher of the Year, as well as Mobile County Public Schools' Middle School Teacher of the Year for 2019. 

As a member of the PPS Staff, I serve as a teacher of MYP Language and Literature Course II, the chair for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Lady Pirates Basketball Coach.
