Concepcion (Cookie) Lopez

Teacher

I was born in Comerio, Puerto Rico. At the age of 12 my family moved to the Bronx. I graduated from James Monroe High School, and attended Herbert H. Lehman College University of NY and studied Liberal Arts and Science. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 40 years. We have two wonderful children and two beautiful grandchildren. I have over 29 years of child care experience. When we moved to New Hampshire I was employed as an Assistant Preschool Teacher with CTI in Lowell. During that time I attended MCC. I am a Certified Lead Teacher and Director II qualified. I also hold a Child Development Associate credential. My priority is to maintain a good healthy, safe, and happy classroom environment. I also enjoy working with my co-workers and parents. I enjoy traveling, learning about different cultures, eating out at nice restaurants, and "salsa" dancing.
