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.

Understanding Standardized Testing In New Jersey Most parents are confused about standardized tests. Trying to research and understand what standardized tests are all about is daunting. Taking it can be stressful for your child because the process seems opaque or unnecessary, or you may question the validity of these tests. We don’t ever want you to feel in the dark about your child’s education, so we are hoping that this can help you understand standardized testing a little better — what it is, how it is administered, how it is used by the State, and what you can do to help ease your student’s mind about the process.
