Email Address: lcooper@stcathschool.org

I have worked 16 years in both public and private schools and in both general education and GATE classrooms. I hold a multiple subjects and administrative services credential, and a specialized studies certificate in gifted and talented education.  I also hold a Master’s degree in Educational Technology from Azusa Pacific University. Along with classroom experience, I have been a Mentor teacher and a Technology Learning Coach; helping to assist teachers in effective instructional technology in the classroom. 

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I consider myself a lifelong learner and I am always looking to improve. I believe it is important to keep students engaged in learning from the time they walk into the classroom to the moment they leave the classroom. I am always looking for ways to give my students a voice in their learning.  I have a good sense of humor and believe a sense of humor helps us keep our perspective, so we can help out students along in the kindest and most effective way.
