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!

Welcome Raiders! It is with great pride I take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new School Counselor at Woodbridge Middle School. I am primarily responsible for all 8th grade students and 7th grade students, who have last names beginning with M-Z. I am thankful to be given the opportunity to work with the students and families in the Woodbridge School District. I believe in our mission to help students at Woodbridge Middle School by being their “Bridge to Success”.
I have spent the last 14 years counseling youth, ages 11-18 in a variety of settings, as well as working with their families in the community. My educational and professional background consists of a Bachelors’ degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in School Counseling and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health.
In my past time, I enjoy music, watching movies and mostly spending time with my family and close friends. I especially enjoy trips to various locations, in and out of the country, where I get to explore different areas and spend time on the beach.
The services our School Counseling department offers our students and families is the opportunity to participate in individual and group counseling sessions, while promoting their overall growth in the areas of academics, personal and social development. We strive to help set the groundwork for students as they transition to high school and prepare for future careers in their pathway program. It is my hope, you will join me on this partnership to help our students grow and succeed in a safe, structured and fun learning environment.
