I am so thrilled and blessed to be teaching 4th grade, after teaching 5th grade for many years. I have a wonderful group of 4th graders this year. This is my 23rd year of teaching.  I am so happy to be teaching at Villa Rica Elementary School.   Go WILDCATS!

I am so blessed to be married to Travis Cooley, Sr. We have been married for 20 years.  God has truly blessed us with two darling daughters, (Miss Sydni Aaliyah, University of Alabama student & Miss Skyla Alexus, 12th grader, at Villa Rica High School.)  They are truly a gift from GOD!

My girls & I are HUGE, Alabama Fans(Roll Tide) and my husband is a HUGE, Auburn Fan, (War Eagle).  So, I guess, it's safe to say, we are a house divided.  My darling daughter, Skyla got accepted, and will be joining her big sister.  She's BAMA BOUND! She will be attending the University of Alabama, Fall 2019.  Roll Tide!

I am a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.  In my spare time, I love shopping, traveling, going to the beach, riding our Harley with my husband & spending time with my family & friends. 

                                               Philosophy of Education

I believe that children are like diamonds who come to us from polished and unpolished backgrounds ready to learn and master skills that will make them jewels for life.  It is what educators do with them that determines whether they will glitter or end up as diamonds in the rough.
