WORLD LANGUAGE TEACHER / SPANISH
Hola! I am very excited to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty! My educational background includes a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Management Science and a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Spanish from Kean University. Since 2009, I have taught Exploratory Spanish and Spanish Levels I and II in grades 2-12.
Because education is very important to me, I have always felt a strong desire to teach. I believe that learning a second language is one of the most valuable assets you can possess as it opens the doors to so many new experiences, whether they be cultural, educational or business related. Being bilingual has been an asset to me in life and work. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for learning the Spanish language and culture with my students…and creating a safe and relaxing environment in which to do so.
My goal as a Spanish Instructor is to have students interact with me in Spanish. I enjoy using a variety of activities that help my students achieve competency in Spanish through the five language skills (i.e. reading, writing, speaking, listening, and culture awareness). Ultimately, my goals are for my students to appreciate different cultures and develop the ability to express themselves in the target language.

Preschool, Elementary, or Middle School — When Does Private School Make The Most Sense? There is no question about whether or not a private school will significantly impact your child’s intellectual, personal, and interpersonal development. However, quite often, parents ask themselves: Does it make more sense to start early, or can I “skip” the first years and start in middle school when it starts counting towards their academic resume?
