Greetings! My name is Matthew Cope, and I am one of the science teachers at Galena High School. I have been at Galena since 2016. Prior to becoming a teacher, I recieved my Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering, but after working in the field, I realized that it wasn’t my passion. After obtaining a Master of Education in Secondary Education, I became a Science and Mathematics teacher. I am currently married to my beautiful wife, Sarah, who is a social studies teacher, and we take care of our small zoo at home. I have coached in the past, in football, baseball and track & field, but currently help with stats and announcing home games for Galena Baseball! I love Giants baseball, hiking, fishing, camping, music, carpentry, and have recently become an avid runner, currently training for my first half marathon. I love being apart of the Galena community, and hope to get to know all my students and their families in the coming year!
