Mr. Gary Cook

Hello! My name is Gary Cook. I started teaching full-time at Monett High School in the fall of 2007, but I have been a part of the staff since August 2004. I am also a MHS grad. Since starting at Monett High School, I have taught almost every class that the Social Studies Department offers along with speech and debate courses.  In my spare time, I love to play bluegrass music, storm chase, road trip, watch the St. Louis Cardinals, and spending time with my niece and nephews. 

I will be teaching AP/DC Government and Speech/Debate this year. I enjoy my job tremendously and it is my hope that each student will leave my classroom a better person, stronger speaker, and a more critical thinker. When we struggle we don't have to struggle alone because ultimately we are stronger together. Let's do this!!!
