Mr. Jason Cowper was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, but he has lived sporadically in Cody, Wyoming, Lafayette, Louisiana, and Concord, Arkansas. He came to Houston, Texas 25 years ago and here’s where he decided to stay.
Mr. Cowper attended the University of Houston Downton where he graduated with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Minor in Communication Studies. While in college, he was an inventory manager for a rigging and lifting warehouse and a waiter. He then moved into the Oil and Gas sector where he was a Supply Chain member for the Research and Development Engineering team. When he obtained his financial license, he became a financial advisor and moved into pipeline as a Pipeline Service Technician. It is after that when he decided to become a full time teacher at HISD.
For relaxation, Mr. Cowper loves to fish, hike, build software, and play basketball.
This is his first year at Burbank Middle School, where he will be working in the Special Education Department. He believes that repetition is key to learning and mastering knowledge, something which he hopes to instill in his students this year.
