Meet Dr. Debra Cohen
John Winthrop Wright Director of Ethical Education
When I left the corporate world to embrace my passion and become a full-time K-12 educator, my goal was to “grow good humans.” While teaching and working with students in the areas of English/Language Arts, Social Studies, and gifted education, I was determined to help my students become ethical citizens who would make positive contributions to the world. Now, as a member of the Character.org team, I’m able to bring my passion for character and ethics to a greater universe of students, teachers, and school leaders.
