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.

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.
