Mrs. Jean Cohn, Art Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jean Cohn

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. My name is Mrs. Cohn and I am thrilled to be teaching Studio Art at Roosevelt High School for 2023-2024. This is my 9th year in the Yonkers School District and my 12th year teaching art. Prior to Roosevelt High School, I taught art at Enrico Fermi for eight years and I am hoping to see some of my previous students at Roosevelt High School.

Before becoming an art teacher, I was designing children's books for major publishing companies. My experience as an artist, art teacher, life-long learner and mom to two grown sons has allowed me to create real-world art experiences for all of my students.
I am looking foward to a successful year.

Feel free to email me at with any questions or concerns.
