Physical Education and Health Teacher
I am a Physical Education and Health Teacher here at Cedar Hill Prep School. I also serve as the coach of the CHP boys’ soccer and basketball teams and assist with all sports and sport related activities here at CHP…which is why I am referred to as Coach.
Prior to this, I worked in the Jersey City Public Schools as a High School Physical Education Teacher and a Middle School Crisis Intervention Teacher and further explored my interest in sports training and athlete development.
Grade 4 Student Pranavi at the United Nations! Peace Day celebrations took place at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday, September 20th. CHP 4th grader, Pranavi Sivakumar, had an opportunity to participate in this International Day of Peace Student Observance. This memorable experience for Pranavi is best described in her own words: “We waited in line for almost three hours. When we finally were able to sit down inside the U.N., we listened to many speeches about climate change. I also met my dance teacher there. She performed very nicely. I was paying close attention. I was the most excited person in my life!”
