Middle School Tutoring Coordinator
Cooper is a graduate of The Ohio State University and a 2018-19 Trinity Fellow. While at Ohio State, Cooper discovered a passion for facilitating growth opportunities for youth by incorporating creative learning strategies in his teaching, mentoring, and coaching. At the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, he developed and directed programs for an interactive video platform that educates students around the country. He also partnered with a community center to tutor and mentor Somali refugees in the Columbus area. Cooper served at Summer’s Best Two Weeks, an outdoor adventure camp, encouraging kids in character and spiritual development, personal growth, and physical fitness. Through these experiences, he built a diverse background that goes beyond the classroom. Cooper ultimately aspires to apply these experiential education skills to build effective relationships with his own students both in the classroom and on the field.
