Welcome! My name is Dr. Cohen and I teach 7th grade Life Science. I am also a coach for our HS and MS Science Olympiad teams. Before teaching at PRA I completed my B.A. and Ph.D. in Biology at CU Boulder...Go Buffs!!! My Ph.D. research was focused a fish called the Cuckoo Catfish, so you may notice the fish theme in my room and might even hear some kids calling me Dr. Fish. In graduate school I spent a lot of time traveling around Colorado teaching science lessons, and found that I love teaching middle school science!!!
When I'm not at PRA, I am usually spending time with my family. My wife Alisha and I have a daughter named Malia, a son named Miles, and a Jack Russell Terrier named Roxy. In my free time I also enjoy playing hockey, fishing, and snowboarding.
I am excited for the new school year and know it will be a wonderful and memorable year. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
