Ms.Cohen is a wonderful teacher; very knowledgeable and good at what Sheba does. She is very passionate about English as well as world culture, so I think is likely that her classes will consist of a lot of off topic discussion, but it is always insightful. All in all great teacher who is a hard marker but a wonderful person.

Her English class is good but 95% of the time the class discussion will be on random tangents (interesting albeit irrelevant to the course). Very interesting woman, easy to just chat with- especially if you're into world issues

My daughter was in private school from JK to Grade 8 and entered the public school system in Grade 9. I was worried about the attention she would receive as well as the level of education & support. Deborah Cohen exceeded all my expectations in every area. My daughter enjoyed her class and was eager to participate. Each and every time I had a question and reached out to Deborah Cohen, her response was within an hour and she addressed each and every question with patience and detail.

Ms. Cohen is an absolute gem. Don't let her reputation of being strict intimidate you- you do have to actually do work in her class but it is easy to be successful because she genuinely wants her students to do well. It isn't uncommon for her to talk for the entire class, but she talks about interesting things that are relevant and you will probably end up learning more than if you were doing curriculum work.

Ms Cohen is a nice teacher. She's a fair marker, thorough editor, and she knows her stuff. She rambles in discussions, and she can be demanding at times, but only because she wants to help students become better writers. Very smart woman.

Very knowledgable when it comes to English and Religion Studies! She's a hard marker, but is patient with students and it is very easy to talk to her about anything. I found her a bit biased when taking her World Religions course, and often unwilling to take other students' interpretations, but still very informative and thorough!

I took Mrs. Cohen's class in grades 10 and 11 in 1998 and 1999. From reading current students' comments, I see she has not changed. She was stubborn and unwilling to listen to other opinions then. She also asserted her faith in class all the time.

Although she's got a bad rep from the lazier students, I absolutely adore Mrs Cohen. If you wanna get on her good side, join Model UN or the Newspaper club (both of which she runs!). She's such a cool lady and a pretty knowledgable teacher. Highlight of the semester was our Life of Pi pie party.

Very good teacher, lucky to get her, yes at time she will link her own life experiences to novels which tends to make people say "she rambles on" but these links help people understand the novel from

I have nothing but hatred for this woman. She is an awful teacher who preaches and preaches about rightful action but she is not even a good person herself. Her classes are ideal to sleep in

An OK teacher, but compared to others, not the best. Tends to ramble off subject and not teach what needs to be taught. Nice, but could be better
