Meet Mrs Cooper and Mr Pear

Mrs Cooper

Where were you born? Reading

How long have you been a teacher?  Oooooh 18 years!

Favourite book?  So many!  I love reading, and I can't pick just one, but my favourites include Little Women, The Diary of Anne Frank and Pride and Prejudice 

Favourite film? If films of the above don't count then I'll choose Footloose.  My favourite children's film is probably Moana

Favourite food? Chocolate obvs!  Favourite proper meal would be Steak and Chips

What are your hobbies?  Reading!  I also love crafting, particularly sewing, knitting and crochet (I even have my own Instagram account to show off my creations), and taking family walks or cycle rides that often include cake and ice cream!  Oh and I've recently started to get back into jigsaw puzzles...

​​​​​​​What do you like most about your job?  Seeing children have the 'ah' moment

What do you like most about working at Drayton? Amazing children, fabulous colleagues

Mr Pear

Where were you born? Born and raised in Oxford

How long have you been a teacher? I've been teaching for 10 years, in Witney, Didcot, Madrid, London and now at Drayton.

Favourite book? Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

Favourite film? Dumb and Dumber
Favourite food? I can't choose between Italian and Indian - but probably not at the same time!
What are your hobbies? Travelling and exploring the world is my favourite thing to do. I also love to play and watch football, but my most recent hobby is looking after and spending time with my two little girls.
What do you like most about your job? I love working with young people and the daily challenges and laughter that brings. I feel that being active and encouraging children to be fit and healthy allows me to feel youthful myself. 
What do you like most about The students and staff are all lovely and have made me feel very welcome. I also love the space that I have to teach. The field is an incredible resource when teaching PE in comparison to the space I had whilst teaching in London.
