Mrs. Cooper is thrilled to be working at Richard Allen Academy.  She has served in several leadership roles. She was an academic adviser as well as taught credit courses at the University of Cincinnati before transitioning to Carpe Diem Preparatory School. During her tenure at Carpe Diem she served as Dean of Students then promoted to the role of Principal. She has experience in teaching and coaching on multiple levels of education including college, high school and middle school.  Her professional career has afforded her the opportunity to speak and present on numerous occasions relating to connecting with students, enhancing growth, relationship building as well as motivating, teaching and preparing others to reach their potential. Mrs. Cooper has always carried and implemented the “we are family” concept and is excited about her new family of students, parents and staff at Richard Allen Academy this new school year.  Her motivation every morning for the building is “it’s going to be a great day because great people have great days and all of you are GREAT”!
