Tammy Coop - Library

Hello, my name is Tammy Coop.  I am the school librarian for East Lincoln and Robert E. Lee Elementary.   I graduated from Tullahoma High School. Received a BS in Elementary Education from MTSU.  I taught first - third grades in Moore and Bedford Co. Schools for 8 yrs. During that time, I also received my Masters degree from MTSU in Library Science and Supervision of Materials.  I spent the next 20 years as Media Specialist in the Murfreesboro City Schools System. In 2014, my family decided to come home to Tullahoma to be closer to family and that is when I began working for TCS.  I love working with the children of Tullahoma, helping them to discover a love of reading, imagining, creating and life-long learning. When I’m not at the library, I love spending time with my husband and two children, gardening, playing games and watching movies.

Abbi Jenkins - Music

Hello! I am originally from Kingsport, Tennessee. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2018 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music, specializing in vocal, general, and instrumental education. I started teaching music at East Lincoln in Fall 2018. 

My philosophy of music education stems from the teachings of Dr. John Feierabend as well as my own version of his "30-year plan".  In 30 years, students who I teach should be able to:

1. Sing lullabies to their children as well as "Happy Birthday"

2. Move comfortably to the beat aka dance to the beat of music

3. Expressively move to and sing music.

I relate step number three to being able to read to a child using different voices to represent different characters.
