Mr. Steven Koops

Hi and welcome! I was born in Michigan in 1961. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree at Hope College in Holland, Michigan in 1983 with a major in Political Science and a minor in History. After college, I was an officer in the U.S Army until 1992. It was during a three-year tour of duty in Germany that I realized how much I loved travelling and learning about the world. I left the Army to pursue what I loved... teaching History and World Studies. By the end of 1993, I had earned a Masters Degree and a Colorado Teaching License from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. My wife, Norma and I have lived in Monument since 1993...The very year that I began teaching at Lewis-Palmer Middle School. Please feel free to email me at
