Message from Mrs. Cope


I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Greenback School! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work in my home community, and to be at a unique PreK-12 school.  My teaching experience includes 5 years teaching in Knox County, 7 years teaching at Loudon Elementary School in Loudon County, and 12 years in school administration, as well as teaching private art and piano lessons.  

I live with my husband and Greenback Alum, D.J., right here in Greenback.  D.J. teaches 5th grade Math and Science at his alma mater now!   When I am not at work, I enjoy training to run in 5K, 10K and half marathon races; traveling;  knitting; writing; baking; reading; and watching stunning East Tennessee sunsets across the field in my yard. 


Please look for me at school, or contact me by phone or email any time throughout the school year with ideas, suggestions, or concerns so that we can work together to make this a truly successful year for our students.




Thanks to Greenback Alumni Daniel Summers, Emily Spafford, Brennan Garren, Tavin Kilpatrick, Samuel McCloud, Tanner Hanley, and Rachel Moffett for sharing strategies and insights with our Juniors and Seniors about life after graduation.
