4TH GRADE TEACHER / MATH AND SCIENCE
Since 2009, I have been teaching fourth grade at Cedar Hill Prep. I graduated from Kean University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. My work experience includes teaching in both public and private schools from preschool to eighth grade.
As long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher and find this profession to be challenging and very rewarding. My goal as an educator is to reach all of my students, equip them with the necessary skills, and guide them so that they can make a difference in the world. At the end of each school year, I hope that I have touched their lives in a positive way so that they will be able to do the same for others.
Grade 4 Student Pranavi at the United Nations! Peace Day celebrations took place at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday, September 20th. CHP 4th grader, Pranavi Sivakumar, had an opportunity to participate in this International Day of Peace Student Observance. This memorable experience for Pranavi is best described in her own words: “We waited in line for almost three hours. When we finally were able to sit down inside the U.N., we listened to many speeches about climate change. I also met my dance teacher there. She performed very nicely. I was paying close attention. I was the most excited person in my life!”
The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
