About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
My name is Julie Cooper and I LOVE to teach Pre-K! ❤️ I have taught in DeSoto County for 24 years. I am also a product of DeSoto County Schools. You could say that I've spent my life invested in our schools! I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi, and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.
I am the mom of two very busy boys. I have a sophomore and a 5th grader. I love to read, watch my Ole Miss Rebels play football and baseball, and watch my oldest play baseball. I'm a total boy mom! My youngest and I love to go to movies together.
Our classroom is a very busy place where we create, play, grow, and love! We learn so much during our time together. We learn our letters and numbers, learn to read and write, and we learn to be a good friend. Pre-K is a place to be your unique self while learning to navigate this great big world. We have so much fun together!
