- 4th Grade
Hi, my name is Karie Cooper. I am super excited to be your child’s teacher this year! Here is a bit about myself. First, here is a bit about my educational and teaching background. I have a bachelor’s degree in child psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, my elementary teaching degree is from Denver University, and I have a master’s degree in educational leadership from Walden University. I have been teaching for many years in mostly third and fourth grades. I taught in the Denver Public Schools for six years before coming to St. Vrain 20 years ago. Teaching is my true passion, and I embrace the good times and challenging times equally. On a personal note, I am married, and have been for 28 years. I have two children, Rachel and Ryan who have recently turned me into an ’empty nester’. My hobbies include adventuring with my family and friends, running, hiking, biking, reading, traveling, and exploring.
