1ST GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES

Julia Parker

I have been a teacher at Cedar Hill Prep School since 2009.

Teaching is a second career for me. Although I worked as a Health Care Recruiter and Employment Manager for close to 15 years, I had always wanted to be a teacher. In 2000, after my third child was born, I enrolled at Johns Hopkins University to realize that dream. Balancing school, motherhood, and recruiting, I was able to graduate with a Master’s Degree in Teaching in 2007 and began teaching 4th grade in Maryland. I joined Cedar Hill Prep when my family relocated to New Jersey.

There are so many things I love about teaching at CHP. I love that every day is different and offers unique challenges. I love the school spirit and learning new and better ways to connect with students. But mostly, I love being a part of the students’ learning and their “Ah-Ha” moments, those times when I hear  a little voice say, “I got this!” These are the moments that continue to inspire me.
