Middle School Teacher
Ali Cooper is a middle school teacher at Utah Connections Academy. She shares her story below
“I have taught middle school math for seven years now and I came from a district that had 1-1 technology for several years. I really love utilizing every digital tool to reach all students.
I decided to make the switch to virtual teaching this year because I felt like I could grow and use my technical abilities to the fullest I am from Payson, AZ which is a small town in the mountains in central Arizona.
"I really love utilizing every digital tool to reach all students!"
— Ms. Cooper
My husband and I have two daughters who also attend Connections Academy. A little fun fact about me is that I have been a licensed and certified Pyrotechnitian since 2003 and I shoot fireworks shows professionally.”
