Congratulations Diana Reynolds
Garland ISD: Teacher of the Month
Congratulations to Mrs. Diana Reynolds who has been selected as Garland ISD teacher of the month for the month of June. Mrs. Reynolds is a 29 year veteran teacher. She was the teacher of the year for Cooper Elementary in 2012-2013.
She has taught at Cooper Elementary for 12 years.
Several years ago Mrs. Reynolds became a mentor teacher. She has helped beginning teachers in several grade levels during their first year of teaching.
“I like to learn new things every day,” says Mrs. Reynolds. That is the reason she looks forward to coming to Cooper to teach. She wants her students to love learning and make it a lifelong pursuit. “I like to envision my students in the future and hope that they take the knowledge and understanding that they have gained from my class and apply it to their lives and careers.” Mrs. Reynolds is living her dream of being a teacher. She cannot imagine doing anything else.

Cooper would like to extend a tremendous, "Thank you!" to all the volunteers who came in to share what work they do. The students were inspired and enjoyed you in our classes.
Cooper hosted its first career day event, The Wonderful World of Work, April 29th. We had guest speakers come in and tell about their jobs. Our students learned that no job is too big or too small and that we need all jobs to make our society function. We had a great day!
