Degrees and Certifications:
I am Heather Cohen, a proud member of the Murray ELL team. I teach social studies and writing for Language Academy students and love how they provide a rich platform for sharing and connecting to others. I also co-teach Language Academy Math Foundations and 7th grade Life Science.
I have been teaching at Murray since 2017. Previously, I taught in the upper elementary setting for Language Academy and co-teaching. I have a BA in Social Studies from Hamline University and licenses for K-6 Elementary Education, 5-8 Social Studies, and K-12 ESL.
When I am not teaching, my passion is to travel. Every year my husband and I venture out to a new place, often another country. We love to experience new cultures and get off the beaten path to spend time with people who live there. Traveling allows us a way to see outside of ourselves and gain a new perspective. Teaching multi-lingual learners enables me to do that even in my classroom!
