Mr. David Landis

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year @ Copper Creek Elementary.  Thank you for choosing such a wonderful school for you and your family.  We are glad you are here!

My name is David Landis.  This will be my 18th year teaching special education.  I will also be the (SES) Special Education Strategist here @ Copper Creek.  I take pride in having open communication with my students and their parents/guardians.  I believe in a "team" approach when working with families.  Together, we can have a successful school year! My personal mission statement has always been, "you can't help everyone everywhere, but can help someone somewhere."  I look forward to working with you and your family for years to come!
