Hi. I’m Casey Cohen:

Educator. Innovator. Leader.

I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in seventh grade and was cast in my middle school's production of The Miracle Worker. I learned the story of how Anne Sullivan taught a blind, deaf, and mute Helen Keller how to communicate, and I realized that Ms. Sullivan did more than teach Helen how to communicate: she unlocked Helen and opened her up to the world and the world to Helen. This realization has inspired me ever since.

I received my B.A. at the University of Michigan, where I studied English, history, and theater in Michigan's Residential College. I received my Ed.M. at Harvard's Graduate School of Education Teacher Education program, where I studied English and secondary education. I also studied school leadership at the University of Pennsylvania where I participated in the School Leadership Program. And, I recently completed my Ed.D. in the Global Educational Leadership program at Lamar University.

I am currently the Director of Technology Innovation and STEM Programs for the Rose Tree Media School District and a proud member of the Apple Distinguished Educator Class of 2015.
