I am really excited to join Cedar Hill Prep School! I was first drawn to this school for the cultural diversity and drive for achieving great success in academics. Since then, I have fallen in love with the passion and collaboration of the Cedar Prep Staff and Administration.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education from The College of New Jersey, with the distinction of graduating Cum Laude. I am certified to teach grades K through 12 but especially enjoy teaching Elementary and Middle School grades, making Cedar Hill Prep a perfect fit for me.
Aside from teaching, I am passionate about volunteer work and competitive art and will bring that passion into optional clubs and electives at Cedar Hill. Joining Cedar Hill Prep with immense excitement, I hope to spread a love for art and the community to my students along with a real understanding of how essential art is in life.
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!”
