Mrs. Cooperrider

Welcome to Language Arts!

My name is Rachel Cooperrider, and I have been teaching since 2011.  I am a graduate of Ohio University with a bachelor's degree in Middle Childhood Education and a master's degree in Reading Eduaction.  While this is my third year in Texas, I previously taught grades 6-8 in Ohio and Colorado. 

Language arts is important because it has the power to influence future success in any profession.  Reading and writing skills are utilized in every subject area.  I love language arts for the connections students can make with a text.  I believe that all students are capable of finding success in reading and writing.  In my class you will see students frequently collaborating together to make deeper text connections, and refine writing skills.

I look forward to getting to know your child throughout the school year.
