Welcome to Mr. Cosper's 3rd grade class. I am excited to get the year started and get these kids to where they need to be by the end of the year. We have a long way to go and I can't wait to see what these kids can do.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Gilbert High School in 2001. I attended Ottawa University and graduated with my degree in Elementary Education in 2005 as well as my masters in Educational Leadership in 2009. This will be my 11th year teaching. I taught for a year in the Florence District teaching kindergarten. I spent eight years in the Queen Creek District where I taught 1st grade for three years, 2nd grade for 4 years, and 4th grade for one year. This is my second year here at Patterson where I teach 3rd grade.
My Educational Philosophy
Education to me is very important for every student no matter who they are or where they come from. It is necessary for students to work their hardest, try their best, and make mistakes so that they can grow and reach their highest potential. School is just one form of education for a child. I believe that extracurricular activities, whether they are physical or mental, play a huge role in the outcome of a child's academics and success.
