Darinka Cooper | Special Education

Dear Antelope Family,

I am Darinka Cooper. I have two beautiful boys, one is two, and the other one is a year old. We own 8 fish, and we will soon have 5 chickens. As a family, we like to go on walks and swim. I enjoy dancing, reading children's books, and eating vegetarian food.

This is my 6th year teaching as a special education teacher in the Jordan School District. It has been a pleasure to work with the wonderful and creative students and staff of Antelope Canyon. I have worked at Herriman, Fox Hollow, and now Antelope Canyon Elementary. I am so thankful to be a part of the Antelope Canyon community. I know that we will all have a wonderful time working and learning together.

There are many reasons why I became a special education teacher, but the main reason is that I want all students that I meet and serve to reach their potential and goals in life. With teamwork, love and care, structure, consistency, resources, and the right evidence-based strategies, we can make my goal and your children's IEP goals come true. 🙂
