Wellington Elementary Appreciates Education
Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai said, “In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It's their normal life. But in other part of the world, we are starving for education...it's like a precious gift. It's like a diamond.”
Heather Cooper Named 2013-2014 Wellington Teacher of the Year

Heather Cooper Named 2013-2014 Wellington Teacher of the Year Wellington Elementary is proud to announce Heather Cooper has been awarded the distinction of “Teacher of the Year” for 2013-2014. In a school like Wellington, where excellence is the norm rather than the exception, it’s truly an honor to be chosen by your peers as one who stands out as exceptional. Ms. Cooper has served on multiple grade levels, most currently fifth grade working with Ms. Banos and Ms. Garlington. She is probably best known for her ready smile and willingness to help anyone anytime for the benefit of our students. In this age of digital technology in instruction, Ms. Cooper is one of our in-house experts who has taken on the challenge of technologically enhanced instruction and has truly served as a teacher leader as we explore the benefits of blogs, apps, iPads, and more! Ms. Cooper also shines at the art of integrated instruction, with a firm grasp on the concept that learning is interconnected rather than separate subject areas, and works closely with her team and students to explore how Math is used in Science, Reading in Math, Science in Social Studies, etc. She makes learning enjoyable and easy for her students. Most amazing of all, Ms. Cooper manages all of this AND (together with her teacher husband) is a wonderful parent to three young children at home. We’re delighted to name her WES’s Teacher of the Year.
