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.

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.
