3RD GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES
I am thrilled to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty as the 3rd grade teacher of Language Arts and Social Studies. Before joining Cedar Hill Prep, I taught grades 3rd – 8th for over 4 years in the Paterson Public Schools and at the Community Charter School of Paterson.
I am a graduate of Kean University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have dual certifications in Elementary Education K-6 and Language Arts Specialty Grades 5-8.
