Had him my freshman year when I had to switch out of one class, since I didn't know what was going on in that class I was scared I'd get stuck behind but he helped me amazingly without slowing down the class. He's really an amazing teacher and he knows how to have fun and get work done, I'm sad that he retired but honored that I had him for his last year. With his many years of teaching and many years of serving in the army he had some amazing stories to tell and didn't let it get in the way.
Mr. Cooper was my favorite teacher of junior year (APUSH), and almost certainly the best teacher I've ever had. His knowledge of history is astounding; I don't think there was one person who was able to stump him on a history question at any point during the year. He managed to blend current events and history, while at the same time maintaining an amazing sense of humor. Though APUSH requires a lot of textbook reading and some tests are hard, Mr. Cooper helped us all achieve to our potential.
Cooper is the best! I'm a bit quiet in class, but class is so much fun everyday anyway. He tells GREAT stories, and explains ideas very well. He's a VERY interesting person - asking him about his life always leads to great discussions. He does (purposely) go off topic a lot, but you learn something from everything he says. Cooper is genuine, likable, easy to understand, and really helps you grow up in general. Mr. Cooper, this is my silent thank you to you - we'll all miss you when you retire.
Had him for mentor study hall my freshman year, then have him for Latin America and the Caribbean. Really easy to get him off topic by asking him to tell stories. All in all the best teacher I've ever had, and probably the best I ever will have.
Coops is probably one of the funniest teachers out there. He is able to be humorous and teach at the same time. He's supes adorable and every student should want to have him for history. YAY COOPER!
By far best teacher you will ever had. Very layed back class but you do work effiectly. Will make your freshman year a blast. He understands that teachers give too muich hw and are too stuck up at many times. Very good story teller. His class gets me through the schjool day without falling through pressure. I SALUTE YOU COOPER!
I had Mr. Cooper for mentor study hall. He was very passionate about his job and he really cares about his students. He is willing to help you with anything such as Homework and Advice you name it. He has amazing motivational stories to tell and will easily carry a conversation with you. All in all he's a great guy, great teacher, and knows his history. He's a legend and its honor to get him.
Cooper!! Literally one of the best teachers I've ever had! I'd heard from a few people that he was a boss but didn't teach you anything, but this was not true! (Well, he IS a boss, but I actually learned a lot in his class). He's the best! He'll get all worked up and go off on tangents, but it's hilarious! He has a lot of opinions and a great sense of humor. The workload may seem like a bit much, but it isn't hard, just long. If you have him, history will suddenly become your favorite subject!!!
Nice guy but if you fool around too much he'll lay down the law
John has some very interesting ideas and I have learned more about questioning and even challenging society than about histroy (which I think will do me better in the long run anyways). Has some very good ideas about how the school should be run, if only the administration would listen.
Coopdog is my homeroom teacher he's so awesome mostly jokes around about how i'm such a dope but he's a great guy had him for LAC freshman yr was very easy class got an A while barely paying attention
Very funny and nice! Likes telling stories.
ask him to tell you about the time the NVM mortared his division's toilet in vietnam, lol that was one of the best of his stories. Great times. best for 8th period on fridays, u know how those are ;P
Coopdog is great. Whether you have him for AP or regular, you'll have a fun time in class listening to his stories and random tangents.
BEST.TEACHER.EVER. APUSH is challenging but rewarding. Cooper is hilarious and you learn a ton.
Awesome guy! inspired my brother to be a history teacher when he was in GHS. Lots of fun stories but still learn a bunch!
The best teacher at GHS by far... outstanding teacher that knows what he's doing and keeps students interested in the subject. Hes really fun and knows a lot of things about history!
Mr. Cooper is my favorite teacher ever! Sometimes he would spend the whole class telling thrilling stories but we still learned a ton because he really knows how to teach high schoolers.
Mr.Cooper is the best! you really learn a lot from him and he tells great stories. he's also really funny. He's one of the best teachers.
Mad funny. Best teacher..tells really funny stories!
Cooper is tough, but still the most awesome teacher I have ever had.
hes wicked funny in ci and dumbs things down so you can understand it. but he grades hard
one of the only teachers that i would want to have every year if i could, he is funny and knows a lot (or is good at making u believe he does ) you learn a lot about things from him
My son is a freshman and just had Mr. Cooper. He brings joy to the learning experience and tells the kids that he loves teaching. He appears to b a talented teacher and one of GHS' best.
OMG!! MR COOPER IS THE MAN!! nough said!! and not only that but he's an AMAZING teacher!! i have him for EWC, i hope i get him again for AP
One of my favorite homeroom teachers, I really wish I had him for a class.
Most memorable teacher you'll ever have... and you might learn something. Take his class. Long live the bowtie.
Mr. Cooper taught me in the 80s and I still remember his incredible classes. He was the driving force behind my becoming a teacher myself.
luv ya coop dog! greatest person ever ...even tho hes a teacher
Mr. Cooper is awesome! He made class so much fun. Everyone listens because they don't want to miss a hilarious joke. tells tons of fun stories. P.3 L.A. 04 rox!
Mr. Cooper was a pretty good teacher. I liked some things, and didn't like others from him (sometimes the class got too politically slanted).Good class though.
He is an awesome teacher! The best teacher in the world!

COOP DOG!!!!!!!!!!! wow he should be on SNL or something.... hes the funniest guy ever
Mr. Cooper is the greatest! He is always joking around and just makes class fun and interesting!
I love him, had him few years ago for Latin America, he was histerical, Hey Mr. Cooper u made history fun, i graduated few yrs ago and still think ur great
He teaches a challenging course (AP U.S.) but makes it interesting. He also reads these, which suggests that (perhaps?) He cares what we think. Or perhaps not.
I like him, but he says how much he hates the school administration and says inappropriate things too much. His discussion of history is very vivid. Good Teacher
mr cooper rox! he makes history actually interesting so thats cool i look forward to his class
Mr. Cooper is by far the best teacher out of teacher school. He is so funny and makes learning fun. Thanks for making my AP year enjoyable!
He ROCKS!!! He makes everything fun and funny. One of the most fair and honest teachers out there. Heres a shout out to 8th period Early Western Civ!!
cooper is the best. AP is so much more fun because of him. he tells funny ancedotes and tries to phrase things so they make sense.
Mr. Cooper helps everybody, he's definitely A+ material as far as history teachers go. It's Riley ya gotta watch out for.
he is the funniest teacher and one of the best i ever had. going to his class always put me in a good mood from his good sense of humor
Mr. Cooper is an awesome teacher, he is so incredibly funny and he always grades fairly and most of the time in the student's favor! Do all homeworks& get A's
