About Ari Cohen

email address: acohen

My name is Ari Cohen. I taught 1st grade in Compton, California for 5 years and then for another 2 years in Washington Heights, New York. In 2000, my wife and I moved to Chapel Hill where I earned my Masters in School Administration from UNC Chapel Hill. Following graduation, I spent seven years in leadership at Southwest Elementary School in Durham before accepting the role of Associate Head of School for Curriculum and Student Programs at Marymount International School in Paris, France. My wife, Stefanie, my daughters, Sofia and Eloise and I are so happy to be back in North Carolina

I'm eager to work closely with the PTA to reinforce the family involvement and community building programs. By all of us working together, we support our children's social and emotional development to compliment the outstanding academic foundation being established by the committed faculty and staff.
