HE IS THE BEST! I highly recommend taking Latin!
Had Mr. Cook for Shakespeare back in 1994 or thereabouts. He was the best introduction to the subject. Having grow up now, and traveled to the birthplace of Shakespeare, my appreciation for the lessons learned and the deeper understanding of old English was invaluable. He also wrote me a glowing recommendation to USC. So for those of you that are negative about him - probably because you were not paying attention in his class.
This guy should be anything except a teacher. He verbally abuses students, chooses clear favorites, and forces students to cheat on exams because he doesn't really teach the material-- he expects you to magically learn it on your own. Oh yeah, and he should never put his hands on students. Punching students, flipping over desks is just outrageous.
The best teacher ever. I learned more grammar and writing skills in Latin than in any other English class ever. Mr. Cook is very fair and honest. Sometimes he calls you out on things you do wrong, but you'll thank him for it later.
Cooker is the best teacher ever, he's a goddamn legend and everyone is better for having had his class
Cook is the best teacher ever!! His class isn't easy but it is a fun period none the less. I have learned more from his class than all of my other classes put together!!!
Mr. C is the Legend around the school. He is retired, but he comes back to teach for fun. Mouthing off or texting will result in a punch in the arm with his ring hand. its really funny when it doesnt
Mr. cook is a great teacher. I learned a lot of things in his Latin that helped me to become a better student. I wouldn't suggest taking this course if you don't have tough skin, he can be very rude at times. Although it is all in good humor, sometimes it really hurts.
I took it as a senior just to slack. I would suggest everyone take him for at least a year. He is what all teachers should be, friendly, funny, and knowledgable. Just know that the more he hits you, the more he likes you.
Mr. Cook is completely honest about his ciriculum, and very funny. The class if great if you actually want to learn Latin or if you just want to experience Mr. Cook as a teacher. He's a most munificent man.
I learned more taking 3 weeks of Latin than I did taking... elementary and middle school (and getting an A in English every year) last year. You learn a lot- and if you don't- Cook's hilarious. Latin's my favorite class.
The best teacher I have ever had he's funny and smart he shoud go on jeapordy
Cook is the best guy ever, His birthday is November 23. He will be 62. So we should all buy more candy. Coooker you make my day.
best teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! awesome and halarious
The campus convenience store and comedy club: Mr. Cook's room.
He was my English teacher at Serra H.S. in 1972. He was great. I learned a lot, and I enjoyed his class.
Wisest man I've ever met. Best teacher in the whole school if not the whole world! I learned more in one period witht he Cooker than I did the rest of the day.
one of the best teachers @ the school, along with Mr. Brown and Ms. Martinez Sellan. Hopefully he won't retire soon---the school will miss him.
I know how to write because of this man. I would not have made it through college and grad school if he hadn't taken the time to set me straight.
my fave for 4 years.an inspiration made me feel like a star as a frosh let me know how much more he expected out of me in the next years.A genious w/explanation
Thanks for being the one teacher at Costa that actually teaches : )
Best volleyball coach of all time. Nice guy too, I'll miss you old guy
