Ms. Joyce Cooper

Welcome to our class page.  My name is Ms. Joyce Cooper and I have been in Troy, Alabama for 33 years.  My two daughters came through the Troy City School system and I have been at Troy Elementary School for 24 years.  The first few years I ran the Science Lab which has since become the Computer Lab.  The rest of the time I have been teaching first grade.  My oldest daughter lives in Tuscaloosa and my youngest daughter lives with her husband in Kirkland, WA.  When I am not working on school related things, I love to sew and do craft projects or go to the beach.  My biggest project right now is getting ready for my granddaughter's birth in December.
