4TH GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES / VICE PRINCIPAL
I was delighted to join the Cedar Hill Prep Community in 2012 as the fourth grade teacher of Social Studies and Language Arts. I began my career as an elementary school teacher in a New York City public school and then served as an administrator and fourth grade teacher at an independent school in Monmouth County.
My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Social Studies and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have dual certifications in New York State and New Jersey to teach Early Childhood and Elementary Classes.
Teaching is inspirational! As an educator, I am incredibly fortunate to have an opportunity to create an environment in which students are motivated to tap into their creativity and curiosity; where they can develop the confidence needed to welcome new challenges; and where they can begin to appreciate the value of becoming productive and contributing members of their communities. It is a privilege to work within a collaborative environment of wonderfully talented educators who are dedicated to ensuring that our students receive a “blue ribbon” education and the values that are commensurate with that.

Preschool, Elementary, or Middle School — When Does Private School Make The Most Sense? There is no question about whether or not a private school will significantly impact your child’s intellectual, personal, and interpersonal development. However, quite often, parents ask themselves: Does it make more sense to start early, or can I “skip” the first years and start in middle school when it starts counting towards their academic resume?
