MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS
I am thrilled to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty as a Middle School Language Arts Teacher. My Bachelor’s Degree is in English and Speech Secondary Education and my Master’s Degree is in Educational Administration. During my thirteen years in Education, I have taught 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and Performing Arts and served as a Middle School Vice Principal and Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction. While I enjoyed my experience in school leadership, I realized how much I missed teaching Middle School.
I love to engage students in creative activities that enhance their reading and writing skills while exposing them to public speaking and theater. My goal is to inspire students’ confidence in their ability to read and synthesize diverse texts as well as to write and speak poignantly about various topics. I want students to view my classroom as a safe environment that promotes respect for themselves, each other, and both the classroom and school community.

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.
