Mr. Cooper Elliott

Hello Everyone!

My name is Mr. Elliott and I teach Economics/Government & World History at Coconino High School. This is my first year at Coconino as a full-time teacher, however I spent a year Substitute Teaching at Coconino High School so I feel very familiar and welcome by the staff and students. I will also be an Assistant Coach on the Basketball team this year.

I grew up in the State of Washington up in the Pacific Northwest. Cashmere, Washington (Links to an external site.) is where I went to High School. My grandfather and Dad attended the same school as well as coached and taught there as well. I played 3 sports in high school, Football, Basketball, and Baseball. I had some great teachers and role models that eventually made me want to become a teacher.

After High School, I attended Washington State University as a Student-Athlete. I played baseball for the Cougars while earning my Bachelors Degree in History.  I met my wife at WSU through athletics as she played Volleyball. 

Shortly after WSU, my wife and I got married and immediately moved to UCLA(Los Angeles) and then NAU(Flagstaff) shortly thereafter. In 2019, I obtained My MIT(Masters in Teaching) in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University.

My wife and I love Flagstaff and we are very excited to be a part of the Panther family!
