Coach Cooper

Hi! My name is Coach Cooper and I am going to be your Physical Education Teacher at Dutch Fork Elementary. This will be my first year at DFES, fifth year in the district, and my eighth year overall teaching PE.  Before coming to the Columbia area, I taught three years in Charleston, SC. 


I have a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and a minor in Coaching from SUNY Brockport in NY State. I love teaching students how to be lifelong movers and live a healthy lifestyle. I can’t wait to help you explore a variety of physical activities. 


In my free time I like to be adventurous outdoors with my family and dog, Ellie. We also like to watch baseball, football, soccer, and cooking shows!


I look forward to seeing everyone this school year!
