Ms. Cooney's Website

My name is Caitlin Cooney and I am the Fifth Grade Resource Teacher at Washington Elementary School.

I spend a lot of time in the general education classroom. That means that I get to work together with all of the amazing Fifth Grade teachers here at Washington. This year, I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Reidy for reading, writing, and math.

This is my third year teaching at Washington Elementary School, and I am so excited for the new school year. I received my Bachelor's degree in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011, and my Master's degree in Special Education from Northeastern Illinois University in 2016.

This summer, I was lucky enough to do some traveling with some of my family. I went to California, Maine, Croatia, Montenegro, Vienna, Prague, and Ireland! I had a fabulous summer. In my free time, I love to read and spend time with my family, especially my dog, Winnie. I am a huge Blackhawks fan, and I also love the Cubs, Bears, and Bulls. I love everything Disney!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

The best way to reach me is by email or voicemail, as I am usually with students. I will do my best to promptly return your email or give you a call when I have a free period. I am looking forward to a great year!:)
