Degrees and Certifications:
I have taught at AHS for 18 years and have been in Aspen for 30 + years and love working with the youth of our valley. I am currently teaching IB Business Management and IB Economics. I spent much of my childhood moving around the East Coast and settled in Tidewater, Virginia and also lived in Europe where I attended German high school. I have studied German, Swedish, and Russian formally and enjoy travelling in my spare time. My favorite activities include skiing, biking, reading, sailing, and hiking and of course COOKING. My academic studies include Political Science, German, History, and Economics. I have worked in the securities industry as a licensed financial adviser. My interest in economics and business stems from my experiences in finance and as the husband of a banker. I also had the unique opportunity of spending 8 months teaching and studying at UCT in Cape Town, South Africa. I have a wonderful wife, Jody Cooper and two stepsons, Brandon Cooper and Matthew Cooper.
