Carlos Cooper Jr.

My name is Carlos Cooper Jr. and this is my 1st year at Murphey and my 5th year as a teacher/ instructor. I am thrilled to be your ELA teacher this year. I have my bachelor’s in Psychology from Fort Valley State University and I’m currently at Jackson State University on my master's in Secondary Education. I also coach Football here at Murphey, GOOO Mavericks!!!


In our class, we will explore the wonderful world of literature, language, and communication. Together, we will embark on exciting reading adventures, discover new perspectives through writing, and develop essential skills that will serve you well beyond the classroom.


I am excited to learn alongside you and help you become confident and skilled communicators. Remember, we are a team, and together, we can achieve great things! If you or your parents have any questions or concerns before the school year starts, feel free to contact me via email at or call me at (678)744-7554.


I am looking forward to meeting all of you and creating a memorable and rewarding school year. Let's make it a year filled with joy, growth, and meaningful learning.


I have grown to understand that I have a passion for working with young learners. I love to help each child progress in all areas of their development- academic, social, and language. I strive to create leaders that will build a better future.

Warmest regards,


Carlos L. Cooper Jr,- 7th Grade ELA Teacher
