Nancy has taught fifth grade at Maxwell A.F.B. for the last eight years. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from Troy State University. Undecided about a career choice, Nancy followed her mother's advice and became an elementary school teacher. She had a difficult time envisioning herself in a classroom but, "you always follow your mother's advice", and thirty years later she finds the classroom is where she wants to be. "Teaching grabbed my heart and soul and has never let go." In the community Nancy is known as the "orphan lady". She and her family have raised orphaned fawns, pigs, calves, geese, and many, many birds. Her dream is to one day turn her experiences with animals into children's books. Parents' comments include, "Nancy Cooper is a parent's teacher. She is accessible, encouraging, knowledgeable, and professional."
