Meet our Second Grade Teachers
My name is Rosie Kohn and I teach 2nd grade at CMCS. This is my second year at this fabulous school. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, but made my way out to Colorado for college where I studied film theory and history. I moved back to LA in 2016 to be closer to family and get my teaching credential. I was beyond lucky to be placed here for my student teaching and got to learn from the fabulous Kathi Sweet. I am so fortunate to be teaching here at CMCS and I look forward to the year ahead!

Studying to become a teacher
This year marks the beginning of my 34th year teaching. Over my career I have taught all elementary grades K-5th in Arizona, East LA and South Central LA. I came to CMCS 20 years ago with my daughter Rachael who was entering 2nd grade (she’s now 27 and a PhD student); 4 years later my son Galen began kindergarten here (he’s now 23 and a Master’s degree student).
A fun fact about me is that I am an outrigger canoe paddler and I also help coach the children’s outrigger paddling program. I love to read and talk with friends so one of my favorite parts about teaching is connecting with each of my students and sharing great books together as a class. I feel lucky each and every day to be a part of our wonderful learning community.
