Research Consultant / Career Coach
I come to Cedar Hill Prep with 16 years of experience in research design and experimentation. After receiving a Ph.D. in Organizational/Social Psychology from Rutgers University, I served as a consultant and also a project manager for several organizations. I also taught Calculus and other math courses at St. John’s University in Queens as well as Psychology at Rutgers, New Brunswick.
I am truly passionate about inspiring students to reach for the stars, to dream the “big dreams”. My students have often heard me say, “Never give up” and “Anything is possible”. I believe in providing students with a solid foundation in scientific experimentation. It’s fascinating to watch our young scientists ask questions and learn how to systematically go about answering those questions from an experimental standpoint. My goal is to have students gain an appreciation for experimental methodology that is rooted in scientific rigor.
Along with teaching research methods and experimentation, I will also be working with CHP students who are enrolled in the “Career Journey” exploration program. Students in this program gain valuable insight into their strengths, talents and interests by completing career focused assessments and working one-on-one to create a customized portfolio of “next steps”. The goal of this program is to not only help students define their future career interests but to also provide them with tangible “what’s next” action items.

Third graders started off 2019 on a great note by visiting the assisted living facility. They sang a few songs and also played the recorder under the guidance of the music teacher. The students also read a few books to seniors at the facility and were praised for their fluency in reading and their confidence in conducting themselves. Great job third grade!
Ellen Callahan, CHP Middle School Teacher / Social Studies, began her story many years ago as a seed planted in another time waiting to take root and grow. In the early ‘80s, she began her journey as an educator working with physically and intellectually challenged children. It was hard work, and the children often made very minimal progress. However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
