    Learning Support Teacher

    Amy Cohen

    After completing a Bachelors of Arts degree at Brown University in Rhode Island, I worked as a paralegal and then, a researcher assisting Fortune 500 companies.  I was also part of a landmark Title IX lawsuit which aimed to improve opportunities for females in sports.  During this time I did lots of public speaking, testified before the US Congress and was part of several television programs connected to women’s sports.  After meeting some incredibly passionate teachers, I decided I wanted to feel that type of passion for my work.

    Peace and love everyone! I am excited to be joining the CDS family as a high school mathematics teacher. I was born and raised in Connecticut, a state on the east coast of the United States.
