My name is Ms. Cooper. This is my 23rd year with Perris Union HSD, most of which has been spent at Perris High School. My educational background is primarily in Geography, Geosciences and History. I have been teaching for 24 years; however, I started my career as a high school and middle school AVID program tutor during the 90/91 school year in Vista Unified. I have attended Palomar College, University of California, Riverside, Chapman University, Azusa Pacific University, University of San Diego and Mississippi State University. In addition to teaching at Perris High School, I am also an Associate Professor of Geography at Mt. San Jacinto College. This school year my assignment includes Earth Science, AP Human Geography, AP Environmental Science, MSJC Physical Geography, MSJC Cultural Geography and MSJC California Geography. In addition to my teaching assignments, I am the advisor for the Gifted and Talented Program (GATE), National Honor Society (NHS) and the co-advisor of the PHS Science Club.
2020-2021 Class Information
All of my classes during the 2020-2021 school year will be using Canvas to facilitate courses. Students will also be able to communicate via the BAND app. Earth Science, AP Human Geography and AP Environmental Science students may sign into their Canvas Dashboard by going to the PHS Home Page, clicking on "Students", then selecting "Classlink" and clicking on the Canvas icon.
Mt. San Jacinto College Dual Enrollment students will be accessing Canvas through MSJC and will not be using the PUHSD Canvas. To access MSJC courses, go to the MSJC Home Page and click on the Canvas link on the right hand side. You will need your MSJC student information to log in.
