I first became an Aftercare Counselor at Cedar Hill Prep in 2013. I have created my own after school dance club, have been a substitute teacher, and last year served as an Assistant Pre-School Teacher. This year I am thrilled to be an Assistant Pre-Kindergarten Teacher.
I have my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Rutgers University.
I have fallen in love with teaching Pre-Kindergarten. The children are at an age where they are eager to learn and love to have fun. I like to mix in my love of movement with my teaching style. This helps the students to experience visual and verbal learning styles while engaging in an auditory and kinesthetic experience. This makes for a more fun-filled and interactive classroom.

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.
