1ST GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES
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.

5 Ways Kids Can Nurture Healthy Digital Habits This Summer As school wraps up, chances are you’ll be sending students off with fond farewells (and a summer reading list). But it’s also a good time to chat about ways to make screen time fun and educational too. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids spend up to seven hours a day on screens, and summer time can make those numbers climb higher. And while we can encourage balance and offscreen hobbies, we can also make time onscreen more meaningful and rewarding. How?
