Mrs. Lori Cooper
I was born and raised right here in Camden. I attended Pine Tree Hill, Camden Middle, and Camden High. I graduated from CHS in 1986. This is my 21st year teaching and my 17th in KCSD. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Coker College, a MEd in Instructional Accommodation from Francis Marion University, added Learning Disabilities to my Masters degree through Project CREATE, and recently completed another addition to my MEd in School Administration and Leadership.
I am married to Jeff Cooper, also of Camden. He was a law enforcement officer for 15 years before leaving the field to teach Protective Services at ATEC. I am also the mother of 3 awesome young men-Jordan, Graham, and Tanner. I am mother-in-love to Tanner's sweet wife, Christine, and will soon add Graham's fiance, Drew, to the girl power in the Coop family!
Teaching is my passion, and I tell my students that once they are mine, they are always mine. I call them "my school babies", and I promise to love them like my own children. My door is always open to parents....we are a TEAM!!
