Mrs. Cope

Hello everyone!!  My name is Mrs. Melissa Cope.  I hope that you will find this website to be a useful tool as the year goes on.  I'm looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year.  
A little about me.  This is my first year in 4th grade at Athena.  I have been a para-professional at Athena for the past two years.  I graduated from DeSoto High School; attended Jefferson College; then graduated with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Missouri Baptist University.  I am certified in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and Special Education K-12.  
At home; I have my husband, John.  He is a metal fabricator.  I have three boys.  My oldest son, Braden, is at the Desoto Jr. High in 8th grade.  My youngest, JJ, is at Athena in 5th grade.  My stepson, Mason, attends Windsor and is a sophomore.  I also have two furbabies; my baby girl Sable is a Rottweiler lap dog.  She's 115 pounds and spoiled rotten.  I also have a black lab named Jake.  He is our laid back dog.
