Student in classroom - Resurrection School - Sunnyvale


Ms. Emily Cohen

2nd Grade teacher

​Mrs. Cohen (formerly Miss Okawara) is originally from Seattle, but has also lived in Washington D.C., Indiana, West Virginia, and Athens, Greece! She received a B.A. and an M.Ed. from The University of Notre Dame, and is passionate about conceptual mathematics and structured literacy in the elementary classroom.

She has taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades before, but 2nd grade is by far her favorite! Her favorite parts about Res are the cultural diversity of students and the supportive parent/family community.

When she’s not in school, Mrs. Cohen loves biking, hiking, gardening, traveling, and cooking!
