Hi! My name is Mrs. Cooley, and I am excited to be a part of this year's first grade team. Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your new teacher! It is going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and new adventures, and I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for all of you. I want to know ALL about you, but first I'm going to tell you a little bit about myself.

          I am originally from Waynesboro, MS, and I am the oldest of three. I have one sister and a little brother! I graduated from William Carey University with  my degree in Elementary Education as well as a concentration in English and an endorsement in Science. After graduation, I married my high school sweetheart Colby. Together we have a sweet little girl named Charlie Kate and two spoiled Miniature Schnauzers. This will be my 7th year teaching lower elementary and my 5th year teaching 1st grade at Petal Primary School. Go Panthers!!

          If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. You can send me an email at allyson.cooley@petal schools.com. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you this school year! :).
