PRESCHOOL TEACHER / AFTERCARE DIRECTOR
In 2009, I joined the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty as a Preschool Teacher. Since that time, my position has been expanded to include that of Aftercare Director. Before joining Cedar Hill Prep, I taught various grades at Watchung Middle School,Featherbed Lane School in Clark, and W.O.K. School in Hillside.
My Bachelor’s Degree is in Speech/Hearing, Elementary Education, and Special Education. I also have a Master’s Degree in Audiology.
I chose teaching as a profession because I love working with children, watching them grow in every way. The highlight of my day is when children’s eyes light up as they try/learn something new. They are suddenly able to do something they weren’t able to previously do. I feel proud to be a part of their learning experience. It is most rewarding to be able to challenge the young children, watch them learn, and love what they are doing.

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?
