Mr. Nathan Cohn


My career here at John F. Kennedy actually began as a 1st grade student, yes that's right I went to school in this beautiful building and "graduated" from JFK in 1972! I returned in 1992 as a 4th grade teacher and taught 4th grade for 10 years. Fifth grade has been my home for 15 years now and it continues to be the best job in the world!


My favorite thing to do is simply spend time with my wife Carolyn, daughter Daughter, son Jonah and let's not forget my 5 1/2 pound dog, Milo. We all love the great outdoors especially anything related to ocean, beaches, and boating. We have recently become very aware of mindfulness, how important it is to be unplugged from the world and how to be more present in the here and now. Finally, we all love visiting our friends and family from Boston to Michigan whenever we get the chance.


I love playing and watching sports especially football and basketball. I also enjoy working on projects around my house fixing anything I can. Anyone who knows me also knows that I am addicted to technology, from smartphones to Smartboards. Lastly I must say that whenever I get the chance I love getting lost in a great book.
