Paula Cooper

Science Teacher and College Counselor

I have worked in education since graduating from the University of Manchester in 2002. I initially worked at the university where I worked in admissions, recruitment and marketing. I then trained to be a science teacher in 2005. I worked in a school in the UK and became a head of year soon after. I really enjoyed the pastoral and academic guidance aspect to the role and have always loved teaching Biology. I made the move to BISH in 2015. I had always wanted to move into international education and to live in the US was a goal for me also. BISH had a job at the perfect time and I moved here as a Biology Teacher and be a Head of Year. After several years in the role I realized I wanted to broaden my skills set and made the move to role of college counselor in 2020.

I am a volunteer with a local rescue charity where I foster immature or sick litters of puppies until they or old enough or healthy enough to be adopted. I am a huge sports fan and try to go to the Astros most weeks and during football season I will keep up with both NFL and college games. I also love to go to the gym where I do CrossFit and take part in other activities such as biking around the bayou. I like to visit other US cities and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and paddle boarding. In the rest of my free time I like to explore new places in Houston.
