About Us

Hello! My name is Mrs. Cooley and I am an EL (English Learner) Teacher.  My office is at Georgetown Elementary but I also service Bauer, Alward, Park, and Baldwin Street Middle School. This is my fifth year with HPS and I couldn’t be more blessed.  I am a graduate of Hope College and have spent three years teaching in Holland, MI and three years teaching in Maastricht, The Netherlands. I have a Master’s Degree in Education with an emphasis on Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.  I currently live in Hudsonville with my husband, Matt and our loving bulldog, Zoe.  We love to travel, cook, read, and spend time outside- kayaking, swimming, and hiking.  I look forward to working with your child and the Hudsonville Community.
