Senator Shoutout to a new staff member at GES!

Hey! My name is Adam Cooper. I have been teaching in elementary schools and online off and on since 2014. I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Philosophy.

After college I moved from my home state of Georgia to Muskogee, Oklahoma where I served as a corpsmember with Teach For America for two years, earning my teacher certification in the process. I did my summer training teaching pre-k for Oklahoma City's summer school. Then I taught 2nd and 3rd in Muskogee. After my service, my wife and I traveled extensively around the country and the globe. I got a job teaching ESL online to students in China which I did for a few years to support our travels.

When I was not teaching, I was working as a professional singer-guitarist in Atlanta, New York City, Spain, and finally in Philadelphia. After Covid brought the music career to a halt, my wife and I decided to move out west and settle down. The Lord brought us to Gooding, Idaho where we started off doing a work exchange at Floral Avenue Gardens here in town. We liked Gooding so much we decided to stay! After working in beekeeping and construction, I found myself substituting for Gooding Schools. I took a long term sub position for a 4th grade classroom for the 2020-2021 school year, and I am starting off the new school year teaching 5th grade and I am super excited!

I will be teaching ELA, Math, and Social Studies and we have been super busy! For ELA, we have been immersing ourselves in personal narratives as we prepare to write our own. In math, we are doing a lot involving place value, and introducing exponential form. In Social Studies, we are practicing using different kinds of maps to gather information about the United States of America.

I feel incredibly BLESSED to be here and forever grateful to get to know these kids and I look forward to watching them grow!

Senator Shoutout to a newer staff member at GES!

Hi my name is Ms. Moulton and this is my second year at Gooding Elementary School! I grew up in the Magic Valley and recently bought a house here in Gooding with my two cute boys, Liam and Aiden. They are in Kindergarten and 2nd grade this year and couldn't be more excited! We love being Senators! This summer I had the opportunity to work with the middle school students for the summer enrichment program and we had a blast! It was a good opportunity to get to know more kids in our community and teach them some fun new skills.
Last year I taught 3rd grade and had an amazing experience with my team and students. I moved up to teaching 5th grade this year however, and hoping I see my little class of students on my role again in a couple years! In 5th grade the students get to move classes a bit and I am teaching Math and Science. After only 2 weeks of school, I can tell I'm going to love 5th grade and that it's going to be a fantastic year for learning!

Senator Shoutout to one of our newer staff members at GES!

Hello! My name is Bailey Ellis. This is my second year at Gooding Elementary, but my first year teaching third grade! I recently moved to the lovely town of Gooding to be with my husband and our dogs. We have a beautiful and chunky baby girl, Rya. She is almost 3 months old and full of giggles and smiles. In my free time you can catch me eating delicious food and roaming the town with my family and dogs.

Before moving to Gooding, I graduated from Boise State with a bachelors degree in elementary education and I taught fourth grade at Meridian Elementary.

We are all about the business in third grade and we have already gotten started learning about arrays and narrative writing. My students are obsessed with technology and utilizing it to support their learning goals! I am looking forward to having an outstanding year and watching all of my students succeed.

Senator Shoutout to a new staff member at GES!

Hi, I’m Lesley Sliman, I’m 33 years old. I was born and raised in Gooding, ID. I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter named Mykaela and a wonderful fiance named Justin. This fall I will be attending the University of Phoenix, where I will be pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Bachelor of Science in Education/Elementary Education. This coming 2021-2022 school year, it will be my first year as a Para at Gooding Elementary, coaching 8th grade volleyball and the assistant cheer advisor at the high school. When I’m not teaching or coaching, you will find me adventuring and exploring the great outdoors with my family and dogs. I am excited for the opportunity to help mold young minds and reach their full potential.
