About Mr. Cohon
I grew up in upstate New York, in the small town of Monticello. I have one sister, Cindy, and we share the same birthday. We are not twins, just born two years apart. I first earned a degree in a two year program at SUNY (State University of New York) at Morrisville for Design and Drafting with an Architectural concentration. I then switched my major over to education and earned my teaching degree from SUNY Oneonta. I graduated in 1997 with Honors in Education, with a minor in computer science.
My grandparents were snowbirds to AZ and stayed in Sun City during the winter months. One winter break, I came to visit them and my cousins, and fell in love with Arizona. The seasons go from summer to spring all year round. Coming from New York, there really isn't a winter here. I don't miss shoveling the snow, but I do miss the downhill skiing.
In December 2021, I will celebrate my 24th year teaching! I have taught computer class, 5th grade and 4th grade as well has running a computer club. I have been, and still am, the school's webmaster.
During the summer of 2019, I earned my Google Education Certification!I love many sports, including road and mountain biking, running, hiking, snow skiing, waterskiing, and boating. My dad has built boats all of his life, in these pictures you see "Sugar N Spice" built in 1984. The sailboat you see is "Celestial Voyager." My dad and I built this in his garage in Desert Hills, along with my grandfather.
The sailboat had it's maiden voyage a few days after I got married, in 2004. Robyn and I met at a webmasters meeting and she teaches at Copper Creek Elementary School. We now live in Surprise and have two wonderful boys, Joshua and Zachary.
