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 American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids spend up to seven hours a day on screens, and summer time can make those numbers climb higher. And while we can encourage balance and offscreen hobbies, we can also make time onscreen more meaningful and rewarding. How?
