Easily my favorite teacher of all time. More than any other teacher he demanded that we developed our ability to think critically, both in our literature, and in our understanding of the world around us. Also, I met my wife in his class! Thank you!

I hope this is the same Mr. Hooper I had way back in 1971-1974 because he WAS the best teacher I ever had. I SO enjoyed English with him. My goodness, it's been 33 years!

Loved him. Absolutely the best teacher I have ever had. When I was in Eng Lit, he had signs saying, "No Mastication". Loved him so much I was his TA the following year. Brilliant!

I had Hooper is 1982 or 83. When I him for English, he expected the best from me. My former step-daughter was in dummy (non-PC) English(1993) & she got away with poor work.

Mr. Hoopeer is one good teacher who should consider teaching in college, cuz it is really a waste of good potential.

I had Mr. Hooper back in the 70's. He was an amazing teacher. In my own classroom, I find "Hooperisms" like calling my lit students scholars!

Looks just like Robin Williams. Class is pretty easy, just bring your book. You also get an extra 20 minutes of SSR everyday at the beginning of his class. Good stuff

Nice guy, definitely funny, but he never planned on teaching? We had a mock-trial and the rule was anything goes. Kids who knew nothing about law made up non-existant witnesses (although,you don't have to be a lawyer to know you can't make up a witn

Robin William's long lost twin! Go watch Dead Poet's Society (he shows it in class) and look at him. Can't remember what class I had him for, but LOTS of reading and quizzes. Look out for his bike and neon green gear. Really cool guy though.
