Having joined the CHP Faculty in 2015, I currently teach Kindergarten and run an After School Art Club as an extracurricular activity for the students.
I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from The College of New Jersey where I double majored in the fields of Early Childhood Education and Fine Art.
Teaching Kindergarten at CHP has been a most exciting and rewarding experience. As an artist, I feel that it is important to allow my students the opportunity to express themselves, be creative, learn and discover through hands-on experiences. Children at this age are so eager and excited to learn about the world around them. It is a wonderful feeling to watch my students grow in every way throughout the school year.
My goal as a teacher is to make sure that my students feel welcomed, safe and loved coming into my classroom. I truly enjoy coming to school every day and spending time with my class. I strive to have my students feel the same.

However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
