Fork Union Military Academy congratulates LTC Michael Hooper today for being named Teacher of the Year for the 2020-2021 academic year. Cadets were able to vote among the five teachers who had been selected Teacher of the Term throughout the school year.
LTC Hooper has been a part of the FUMA for 33 years. Hooper taught Math and Spanish this year. Also known as “Coach” Hooper, he has been head coach of both Baseball and Football during his tenure at Fork Union. In addition to his academic and athletic contributions to the Academy, LTC Hooper is an avid reader and has a section in the Guy E. Beatty Library, named “Coach Hooper Fantasy and Sci-Fi."
LTC Hooper received nominations that stated:
"He is always here to help you when you need it."
"His teaching style is relaxed while being affective at the same time. I think LTC Hooper is my favorite teacher while being here at FUMA."
"I selected LTC Hooper because he always has a bright attitude. He has a lot of integrity and upheld the COVID regulations inside Moretz. He always disciplines in the best way, and he doesn't yell but calmly tells you to fix yourself and jokes around with you keeping the mood light. Every time he is around, the mood in the air is better and he makes my class day much better."
Congratulations, LTC Hooper!
