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.

Third graders started off 2019 on a great note by visiting the assisted living facility. They sang a few songs and also played the recorder under the guidance of the music teacher. The students also read a few books to seniors at the facility and were praised for their fluency in reading and their confidence in conducting themselves. Great job third grade!
Ellen Callahan, CHP Middle School Teacher / Social Studies, began her story many years ago as a seed planted in another time waiting to take root and grow. In the early ‘80s, she began her journey as an educator working with physically and intellectually challenged children. It was hard work, and the children often made very minimal progress. However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
