    I am very invested in the Montera Middle School community. My grandson attends Montera (now a 7 th grader). As a teacher I was taught the idea that I always want to create the kind of classroom that I would want my own children to be in. If what I’m doing with other people’s children is good enough for my own kids, that’s a pretty high standard.

    It’s really a fabulous community, a wonderful school. We’re located in an idyllic part of the city. And I think we might have the highest percentage of staff and teachers who work at the OUSD school they themselves attended. I think that people whose families and kids come to Montera, deep down they realize they’re in a special place with a special group of teachers and families.

    Students calls me Coach Cooper/Mr. Cooper, Coop, (probably a few less ideal things behind my back as well). Go Toros!
