Greetings Cooper Families!

Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Julia Newman and this is my 4th year at Cooper Upper Elementary. I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Eduation and Early Childhood Education from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Currently, I am studying to receive my Masters in Curriculum Design and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading from Eastern Michigan University. I have a passion for creating a positive, creative, and safe classroom environment. My ultimate goal is to help develop my student's confidence socially and academically. I love to dance in the classoom and make learning super fun! A few hobbies of mine include reading fantasy books -Harry Potter is my favorite book series, yoga, and spending time with my loud Italian family!
