Mr. David Cooney

My name is David Cooney and this will be my second year as a counselor at Millbrook Elementary. I was originally born in Shannon, Ireland and then moved to the United States with my parents when I was only two years old. We settled in Columbia, South Carolina and I am still proud to call it home today. I went to school in Columbia and earned my bachelor's degree from the University of South Carolina in Experimental Psychology. After a couple years off, I went back to the University of South Carolina and earned my master's degree in counseling. Growing up in Columbia and going to the University of South Carolina has made me a huge Gamecock fan, especially when it comes to our football team. I've been in Raleigh for just over a year now and I really love being here. When I'm not helping my amazing students, I'm usually watching soccer or playing soccer, watching college football, or just hanging out with friends.


Why I like working with kids...

I like working with kids as a counselor because I feel like I can really make a positive impact in their lives and set them up for future success.


Why I love Millbrook...

I love how all the teachers and staff want to get involved in the student's success and want only the best for all the students here at Millbrook Elementary.
