Principal Cooper

I am proud to be the principal of Pine Bend Elementary. My previous position was Assistant Principal at Hilltop Elementary where I formed the "Boys To Men" program.  In addition, I was a teacher in the Saint Paul Public Schools.  I believe we can do all things and all students can succeed.

Pine Bend is special because of the involvement of our PTSA, community and fantastic staff.  Our goal is to focus on the "whole child" receiving a well-rounded curriculum.  Students experience enrichment courses in physical education, media and music.  Our student council is active in the community developing strong leaders.  We are proud of our annual events such as SALT Day (Students and Adults Learning Together) and our Carnival that bring the community together.
