MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / SCIENCE
I am excited to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty as a Middle School Teacher of Science!
Previously, I was a 5th grade teacher at Woodbrook Elementary School in Edison, N.J. for several years and an educator for over ten years in the East Brunswick school system. I have also been an adjunct instructor at Middlesex County College for Developmental Reading and Writing.
My academic background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree from Kean University as well as a Master of Science Degree from Walden University. I have continued my professional journey by receiving my Ed. S. in Reading and Literacy Leadership and aspire to complete my doctoral dissertation. You can certainly say I am a lifelong learner!
I enjoy being part of the extraordinary team of students, parents, teachers, and staff at Cedar Hill Prep School!
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.
