Hi everyone! My name is Dani Cohen (also known as Ms. Dani or Ms. Cohen) and I am a Psychiatric Social Worker at LAUSD. I received my undergraduate degree in Sociology from UCSD and received my master's degree in social work from UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. I am very proud to be working at Paul Revere Charter Middle School and Nora Sterry Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. I am passionate about education and working with students and families to promote social and emotional well-being and alleviate barriers to academic success. My favorite self care activities are going on morning walks, cooking, and playing with my dog, Lola. I am looking forward to working with you this year!
