My name is Kristy Soper. I am the teacher of the Young Fives program at Warner Elementary. I have been teaching since 2001. I was a 6th grade resource room teacher for the first three years where I worked with students with learning disabilities. I then came to Warner Elementary where I was the teacher of the Mici (Mild Cognitive Impairment) program for nine years. Although my background is in special education, I am very excited to be teaching young fives!
My college education started at Jackson Community College where I completed my general education classes. I then transferred to Western Michigan University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in cognitive impairments at the elementary level. I received my Master of Arts degree in learning disabilities from Eastern Michigan University. I have been married to my husband Warner for eleven years. Warner teaches 5th grade at East Jackson Community Schools. We have been blessed with four wonderful children. Our oldest, Kilian, is in 8th grade this year, Luke is in first, and our twin daughters, Molly and Maggie, are in kindergarten. Any "free" time I have is spent with family and friends. I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year and look forward to working with you!
