Mr. Jeff Cooper

After 15 years as an active law enforcement officer, I began the Protective Services program at ATEC. This year will be my 10th year teaching this program, and I am looking forward to a great one!

I am the father of 3 sons, all in college, and I have been married for 26 years to Lori Cooper, also a teacher for KCSD.

I know you will enjoy being a student at WTC!
