I am excited to be a member of the lovely community at Cedar Hill Prep School (CHP). As a student at Northeastern University pursuing my Master’s in Teaching, I am required to participate in a semester of cooperative education, which I will complete at CHP. I have experience working as a teaching assistant at the O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science in Boston and as a tutor for 826Boston.
At CHP, I will assist with various classes and clubs while also completing a weekly observational report. I have a strong passion for learning and, in my brief time at CHP, I feel as if I’ve grown significantly as an educator. I am always here to help a student, teacher, or parent with any issue they may need assistance with, and I’m looking forward to a great semester!
