     Welcome to third grade!  My name is Karen Ballard Cooper.  I am originally from Birmingham.  I grew up Adamsville and am a graduate of Minor High School.  In 1994 I graduated from Birmingham-Southern College.  I was employed by Jefferson County as a first grade teacher for two years.  In 1996 I moved to Prattville.  After moving to Prattville I received my masters in early childhood education from Alabama State University.

         I am a member of First United Methodist Church and the New Agape Sunday School class.  I am also involved in Girl Scout troop 9363, Boy Scout troop 25, and a member of the Krewe of Athena.

        I have a thirteen year old daughter, Anna, and an eleven year old son, Sam.  We also have three dogs—BoBo, Zeke, and our newest, Ferris!

        I love to read, swim, listen to music, and play at the creek with my kids and their kayaks.  This is my eighteenth year to teach third grade at Prattville Elementary.  I truly love my job and look very forward to the year ahead of us and all the fun times it will bring!
