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.

The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
