My name is Ellen Cooper and I am so excited to start another great year. I truly love teaching and can't imagine a better job in all of the world. To share a little bit about myself: I live nearby with my husband, my two children, Paige and Noah and my boxer. In my free time, I am an avid runner, love to cook and read, but mostly enjoy spending time with my family. We are going to have such a terrific year together.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Smith College in Northampton, MA as a history major and immediately moved out to the Phoenix area to begin my teaching career through a program called Teach For America. I received both my masters and post-baccalaureate teaching certification from ASU soon after. I have since obtained my Reading Specialist, Math Specialist, Early Childhood and SEI endorsements. Prior to becoming a reading specialist, I have taught all grades Kindergarten through third grade, and have been teaching in the Chandler Unified School District since 2003.
