Mrs. Eva Cohen joined St. Cyril of Jerusalem School in 2012.  She teaches Junior High Math and 6th, 7th and 8th Grade History.  She is also the 8th Grade Homeroom teacher.

Mrs. Cohen earned a Bachelor of Art degree from Washington University in St. Louis, a Master's Degree in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, received her Preliminary Teaching Credential from California State University, Los Angeles and cleared her teaching credential at Mt. Saint Mary's School. 

Mrs. Cohen spent nearly 10 years interning and practicing as a licensed architect in Washington, DC before moving to California with her family in 2004.

"Even as an architect I was drawn to the classroom.  During both my undergraduate and graduate studies, I enjoyed working in the local schools teaching architecture to students.  In graduate school I spent a summer traveling Japan studying the architecture of their schools. When I graduated with my Masters in Architecture, I worked for a Washington DC firm that specialized in building schools and dormitories."

"Combining my architecture background with education is a wonderful way to stimulate my students curiosity, encourage hands on learning, teach collaboration and promote self-discovery".   Mrs. Cohen utilizes project based learning and technology integration into her teaching. In 2014 she brought MinecraftEDU to St. Cyril and integrated the popular game into her history class curriculums.  She is a Fellow of ImmersED and in 2018 she integrated Virtual Reality technology to her classroom curriculum with the use of HTC Vive, Oculus Go, Google Expedition and an Odyssey Jump Rig.

Mrs. Cohen is married and her husband is an Emmy Nominated TV producer, her son attends Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks and her daughter attends George Washington University in Washington, DC.
