Henri Cooper

Henri Cooper teaches Grade 1 at Maury, where she has taught for more than 20 years. Of her 30 years of teaching, she says: “I love the times when my students get that ‘I got it’ look in their eyes—the times they have those ‘aha!’ moments, and then put those realizations into practice. It’s a wonderful feeling! Growing up I had some amazing people who nurtured me. Those people ranged from family members to members of my community. A great many of these people were educators and I so wanted to be ‘like’ them, but I didn’t think I wanted to be a teacher. But I sort of fell into teaching because it was a natural thing to do; it wasn’t something forced…it just seemed to be what I was called to do. Watching children grow and develop has been a blessing to me.”
