 My name is Rachael Copeland.  I am originally from Fredericktown, Missouri, where I graduated from Fredericktown High School.  After graduation, I moved to Alabama where I have lived for the past ten years. 

I moved 12 hours away from my "home" to attend to the University of West Alabama.  While at UWA, I earned my BS Degree in Special Education and a Master's Degree in School Counseling.  I have also earned an  Educational Specialist Degree in School Counseling.  

This is my eighth year teaching at Sweet Water High School.    I am currently the high school special education teacher, while serving 7th-12th grades.

I have been married for six years.  My husband and I have two daughters, Addy Lee and Emma Marshall.  I am super excited about about this school year---Go Bulldogs!
