Hi there! My name is Keshia N. Cooper. I am the mother to two beautiful daughters. Daviana attends Petal High as a freshman, and Paisley is in 6th grade at Petal Upper. David, my husband, attended Petal schools and works as an electrician. We have three dogs (Kuiper, Draco, and Mini) and a cat named Charlie. In my free time, I enjoy running, kayaking, decorating, traveling, playing with my pets, baking, acting as a taxi for my children, and walking around Target with a Starbucks coffee. My family and I feel truly blessed to call Petal our home after moving from Tampa, Florida in 2021. We were welcomed to the Friendly City with open arms, and I am thrilled to continue my teaching career here as a PANTHER!
This year will be my 8th full year teaching. In Florida, I taught fifth grade reading, math, science, social studies, writing, and gifted each day. Last year, I was a 4th grade math and science teacher. I hold a Bachelor of Elementary Education with endorsements in gifted, reading, and ELL services. Currently, I am working towards a Master of Educational Leadership degree at William Carey University.
Education is my true passion, and I cannot wait to share that passion with your children!
