MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / SOCIAL STUDIES
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education from Kean University and a Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist from Fairleigh Dickenson University.
In 1981, I began my teaching career at a school for children with learning differences. For the last 24 years, I have worked with students in grades K-6, teaching various subjects while specializing in intervention and remediation skills for those who learn through different modalities.
I am excited to be a part of the Cedar Hill Prep School dedicated teaching staff and look forward to inspiring students to explore Social Studies through the lens of literacy. It is critical to teach students that by using literacy strategies in content areas we can use reading and writing as tools for thinking and learning.

And while we can encourage balance and offscreen hobbies, we can also make time onscreen more meaningful and rewarding. How?
