Sarah Cooney

SPED I&S Teacher

Hello! I'm Sarah Cooney, a veteran middle school teacher of 16 years, who has taught all over the world! I started off on Long Island, where I grew up playing on the beautiful beaches and then moved to Europe, teaching in London and the Netherlands and traveling as much as I could (30 countries and counting!) When I was ready to come back to the US, I moved to Rockville, Maryland (and lived in DC) for six years, before returning home to NY and teaching in East Harlem for two years! I have a BA in History with a minor in music; I love to sing and see live music. I have a Master's in Teaching and Curriculum Development and am working towards my certification in Special Education, which I've taught in conjunction with Social Studies and ELA for several years, as well as Science for two years. I love to read - especially historical fiction, science fiction, and young adult books. I also love researching about what's new in educational technology; in fact, I used to present how I use Ed Tech in the classroom at conferences up and down the East Coast! I also love photography (you can see some of my work on Instagram @nicefreshbread), and, of course, playing with my rescue diva, I mean, Chihuahua-Italian Greyhound mix, Bella. I can’t wait to meet you!
