2ND GRADE TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS AND SOCIAL STUDIES
I have been teaching second grade Language Arts and Social Studies at Cedar Hill Prep since 2011. Before joining Cedar Hill Prep, I taught first grade for two years in the Berkeley Heights School District.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Community Health Education from Rutgers University and received my Elementary Teaching Certification from Kean University. Teaching at Cedar Hill Prep is very rewarding. I enjoy working with the students and watching them grow into confident readers and writers. Every day is a new and exciting experience for both the teacher and the students. It is so rewarding to make learning fun and enjoyable for all of my students.
Cedar Hill Prep Continues to Win as they Win the First Debate of the School Year!

Arnav Upadhyay won the Golden Gavel for the Best Speaker at the tournament, out of approximately 100 speakers. Cedar Hill Prep School teams walked away with the most wins by percentage points and overall wins. Thirty-seven teams participated in all. Congratulations Cedar Hill Prep Debate Team!
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.
