My name is Candace Cohen and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year! The opportunity to inspire a student’s love for reading is an honor. As an alumna of Holy Family, I feel very lucky for the chance to be back in this loving environment.
My educational background includes: a Master of Education and a Dual Certification in K-8 General Ed and K-12 Special Ed from DePaul University in Chicago. During my ten years of teaching in Chicago, I was able to experience working in the elementary, middle and high school settings.
During the 2017-2018 school year, I had the privilege of substitute teaching at both the North and South campuses. Last year, I had the pleasure of working with our South campus students giving them extra support where needed for their busy middle school life.
I am very excited to be joining the wonderful students, staff and families here at North campus. I know that all of our children have their own individual needs and talents. I will be sure to provide a comfortable atmosphere for them to grow as a confident reader!
