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 and have been an interventionist and now the academic coach.
I am married to my hard working husband, John, and together we have 3 kids...Zack is a graduate of Southern Miss., Shay is a Junior at MTSU, and Mason is in 12th grade at Siegel H.S. I also have 2 extremely spoiled Golden Retrievers named Chipper and Maycie.
