I worked with Risa at CPC High Point School for many years. Her compassion, sensitivity, love, dedication and tireless effort defined her as an excellent teacher. We all loved working with Risa. Her positive attitude and constant support helped make staff a family at work. She impacted the lives of many of her students….always a strong advocate for their goals and needs. Risa was so proud and full of love for her family and glowed when she talked about them at work! She will be dearly missed by all that knew her. May her memory be a blessing and may all of your wonderful memories sustain you during this heartbreaking time. 💕

Risa Cohen was a beloved teacher and friend at High Point School. She loved the students, and her staff. All the other staff at High Point held her in the highest respect. She was kind and creative and set limits for the "kids" when needed.
I am so sorry to hear of her passing, way too soon. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. Wilma Pfeffer
