My name is Jacci Hooper and I am the RTI Coach here at Wilson E.S. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I received my B.S. in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in 1998. I taught 1st grade for 4 years and 2nd grade for 3 years while in Las Vegas. I also received my Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy during this time.
In September 2005, my family took a huge leap of faith and uprooted from Las Vegas to move to Tennessee. I was blessed to get a job at Wilson in November 2005 teaching 4th grade. The next year I returned to 2nd grade where I remained through 2014. I began a new adventure in RTI the following school year as a reading and math interventionist and am currently serving as the instruction/intervention coach.
I am married to my hard working husband, John, and together we have 3 children...Zack is a 2014 graduate of Southern Mississippi University, Shay is a 2018 graduate of MTSU, and Mason is a sophomore at Mississippi State University. I also have 2 extremely spoiled Golden Retrievers named Chipper and Maycie.
