MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / SOCIAL STUDIES
I am thrilled to join the Cedar Hill Prep community as a Middle School Social Studies Teacher! During my 25-year public school career in Dunellen, Hopewell, and Trenton, I taught Middle School Social Studies, Language Arts, Technology, and Gifted and Talented Education. It was during that time that I was honored as Teacher of the Year for my school by the state of NJ and won an Outstanding Educator’s Award from TCNJ. I am the founder and president of the boutique charity, Juggling Life. This charity directs shows and workshops for ill children. In 2008, the Star-Ledger honored me as an I am New Jersey Stand-Out for my teaching and charity work. I am also a Chicken Soup for the Soul author and an inspirational blogger.
My chess coaching career has been very exciting and rewarding. In Dunellen, my chess teams won three Middle School state championships and one Elementary School championship. Growing up in the Princeton area, I studied under Chess Master George Soules. I am connected to many wonderful chess instructors and hope to bring a competitive chess program to CHP.
At Rider University, I was an American Studies major. I have a deep love for History, Geography, Writing, and Civics. To motivate and challenge the students, my methodology for teaching Social Studies incorporates project-based learning, technology integration, and writing.

Third graders started off 2019 on a great note by visiting the assisted living facility. They sang a few songs and also played the recorder under the guidance of the music teacher. The students also read a few books to seniors at the facility and were praised for their fluency in reading and their confidence in conducting themselves. Great job third grade!
Ellen Callahan, CHP Middle School Teacher / Social Studies, began her story many years ago as a seed planted in another time waiting to take root and grow. In the early ‘80s, she began her journey as an educator working with physically and intellectually challenged children. It was hard work, and the children often made very minimal progress. However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
