Mrs. Cooper - 6th Grade Counselor and 7th Grade Counselor for last names from A - L
Welcome, Raiders, to the 2019-2020 academic year! I am the professional school counselor at WMS for students in 6th grade, as well as 7th graders who have the last names beginning with the letters A-L. As a school counselor, I am able to offer students the opportunity to participate in individual, small group, and classroom counseling services, focusing on the needs, interests, and issues related to student growth though academic, career, and personal/social development. In partnership with students, staff, families, our community, and workforce, I help to prepare students to become effective learners, achieve success in school, live successful and rewarding lives, and develop into contributing members of our society.
Originally from Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, I graduated from Bloomsburg University with a major in Elementary Education K-6 and a minor in Psychology. I began my career as a teacher in Arlington, Virginia, where I taught 1st and 3rd grades for 5 years. I then returned to graduate school at Marymount University, where I attained my Master of Arts in School Counseling PreK-12. This will be my 11th year practicing as a Professional School Counselor, and have worked at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, as well as in private practice with dual-diagnosed adults.
In my free time, I am enjoying planning my upcoming September 2019 wedding! I am relatively new to the state of Delaware, and love visiting the beaches near our home and exploring the delicious restaurants nearby. Practicing yoga, reading chick-lit, and rooting on my Green Bay Packers are also some of my favorite past times!
