4TH GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES / VICE PRINCIPAL

Karen Yurman

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.
