Ms. Brittany Ledford
Hi! I am Brittany Ledford, Kindergarten teacher. This is my fourth year at Cooper Academy. I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Early Childhood Education: Birth-Kindergarten. I worked in childcare for four years. So, in total I have been working with children for 7 years!
I am so excited for the 2020-2021 school year. I know the start of the school year will be much different than other years, but, that is okay. Your child may not physically be in my classroom; however, my promise to you is: I will do my best to make your child feel like they are in the classroom and make this learning experience fun and engaging.
We are in this together.
My motto for this school year: Be Kind. Be Patient. Be Strong.
Here are some fun and educational resources that can be used at home:
8:30- 9:00 Lexia
9:00-11:20 Live Teaching Sessions with Ms. Ledford
1:00-2:00 Independent Assignments
9:30-10:00 Independent Assignments
1:00-3:20 Live Teaching Sessions with Ms. Ledford
We are sharing information with our families about the Targeted Support & Improvement State Level guidance for schools who have underperformed on state-wide assessments during the past few years. Of course, last year we did not have End-of-Grade testing in North Carolina due to COVID-19 school closures.
