Meet Mrs. Cooper

  • Hello!! I am Mrs. Cooper
    Council Rock Primary School Physical Education Teacher

    I'm am very excited to start my 12th year as a teacher here at Council Rock. I have been teaching Physical Education for a total of 19 years. I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a Bachelors degree in K-12 Physical Education and completed my Master's in Adapted Physical Education and Pedagogy from SUNY Brockport. I am also certified in Health Education. I truly enjoy teaching children how to live a healthy active lifestyle while helping them grow individually in a variety of skills. It is very rewarding to see the smiles on my students' faces when they learn something new, and while they enjoy being active.

    I lives in Fairport, NY with my husband Stephen, daughter Alison, and son Brett. I have a love for being very active outside of school and can be seen often working out at the gym, playing volleyball, or running.

    As a young athlete I played soccer, volleyball, basketball, and softball in high school. My Junior year in high school my basketball team went to the NYS Final Four and won a NYS Championship and a NYS Federation Tournament Championship my senior year. I continued to play basketball in college for two years.   I was a high school volleyball and basketball for over 15 years at a variety of high school levels. I believe its important to be active in athletics for the health benefits as well as the lifelong lessons they teach young athletes!!

    When I am not being active I enjoy spending with my family and friends.
