New principal at Crestview Elementary
Former Crestview Principal Verneita Hunt moved on to a new position as Associate Director of Human Resources for Granite District’s elementary schools, so as of April 1, Teri Cooper became the school’s new leader.
“For me, it’s already a golden school,” Cooper said after having been at Crestview only two days.
She is impressed with the school’s high quality and it’s warm community, she said. For the remainder of the year, she has no plans to alter any of Crestview’s programs, but will just let it continue to be the “well-oiled machine” that it is.
Cooper was most recently assistant principal to West Valley and Pioneer Elementary Schools, and previously taught fifth and sixth grades in both Canyons and Jordan Districts. She originally got into an education career because her mother spent 35 years teaching.
“I just kind of followed in her footsteps,” she said.
Cooper will continue on as Crestview’s principal next school year.
