Hear from Renee Foroodi about the relationship-building that is essential to Coppell Independent School District.
Coppell is a great community and I feel fortunate to get to work for a district that supports their teachers and helps support them with research and tools. Coppell ISD is all on the same page about understanding the importance of building relationships.
My spark moment was in high school when I was involved in Ready Set Teach, a program where students went to a nearby elementary every day to tutor. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it and it made me grateful for the great teachers she had while in Coppell ISD. I attended the University of North Texas in Denton and earned an Interdisciplinary Studies degree student taught in Grapevine/ Colleyville.
“I had a lot of great mentor teachers I could go to for advice. I was the first person in my family, nuclear and extended, to become a teacher. A lot of it was figuring it out on my own, not necessarily following someone else.”
I grew up in Coppell ISD and am very happy to bring my talents back home.
