This exceptionally antagonistic, heartless, helpless, and outdated teacher is covered by her innocent, sweet, frail and kind appearance. Each night we had spent more than two hours on her confusing and lengthy homeworks and projects, which also had very brief and poor directions. Off topic or redundant assignments each day, along with sleep deprivation. I got a 98 on the final, and learned more from the textbook than being in her class for 180 days. At last, I am relieved of this torture.

I had her freshman year. Although she grades her homework harshly, she gives great notes and good review sheets before tests. As long as you pay attention, you will do well. Her stories are really interesting because she has been to all the places you study during her class. She's really nice too.

She will never answer your questions, no matter how unfair or unclear a question is on a test or quiz. The HW she gives is ENORMOUS and graded VERY strictly. You'll get lucky to have a grade above 95 on ANYTHING, so don't look forward to it. Overall if you get her, switch out, even if there is a friend in that class, switch out together before it is too late! You will regret it if you don't switch out, I warned you.

I had Dr. Cohen as a Teacher about 10 years ago and thought she was amazing then. I am currently getting my Masters in Secondary Education and hope to be just as wonderful of a social studies teacher as she is some day. I am sure I will remember her for the rest of my life.

While Dr.Cohen is very intelligent, she is by far the worst teacher I have ever had. Her class was extremely difficult, mostly because it was impossible to figure out what she was teaching. She spells some stuff out, but other stuff is completely in the dark. The advantage for you though is that she makes all the tests, so she only puts on what her classes know. Thankfully, she gives you a review sheet for the tests which is basically the only way you do well on them.

Her homework was a killer! You never know when she'll collect it or not (I counted up all of the hw she gave me, which was 58). But she's really nice and helpful. As long as you study, you'll do well. I'll never forget when she wrote on my homework, "Bananas come in bunches, not people."

i have only had dr.cohen for 14 days now(so i will do this again once my year with her is over),already most of my class is failing.she is a very nice lady but nothing makes sense.her study guides have the wrong answers as well as the right,but she wont say which is which.she gets extremely off topic and her homework and quizzes are insanely hard.i think that years ago she might have been a great teacher,but shouldn't be teaching now,especially not 9th.i have a big test on wednesday,wish me luck

Her tests are EASY, as are the homeworks (never got below a 90 on anything). She teaches what we're supposed to know, and if you try hard enough, you'll do well. I really liked her class. Oh, and know your geography!

Dr. Cohen is a great teacher! I think that nobody likes her because shes such a good teacher annd believe it or not she is going to help you a lot! Her homeworks may be hard but you learn a lot from them and she really is helping you prepare for college because if you have easy teachers all through HS then your in for a rude awakening when you enter the real world!
