As a teacher, Brad says he gets to make a difference in the lives of 19 children every day. A few of his second graders share the lessons they've learned from Mr. Cohen.

Tajil: Mr. Cohen taught me not to make fun of other people.

David: He's really nice, and he teaches us a lot of stuff—not just math and reading—but how to be a better person.

Kate: I've learned to treat kids like you would want to be treated.

Tritt Elementary fifth grader Andrew has Tourette syndrome. "To me, it's kind of difficult," he says. "Kids were teasing me. Things got easier for me when Mr. Cohen came. I can just tell them that I have Tourette syndrome, and they know what it is."
