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.

Understanding Standardized Testing In New Jersey Most parents are confused about standardized tests. Trying to research and understand what standardized tests are all about is daunting. Taking it can be stressful for your child because the process seems opaque or unnecessary, or you may question the validity of these tests. We don’t ever want you to feel in the dark about your child’s education, so we are hoping that this can help you understand standardized testing a little better — what it is, how it is administered, how it is used by the State, and what you can do to help ease your student’s mind about the process.
