ADMISSIONS COORDINATOR / TECHNOLOGY TEACHER
I am very happy to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep community! My first impression of this school is that it is a wonderfully unique and energizing place, a feeling that has continually been reinforced. I have my BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University where I studied visual arts with an emphasis on painting and graphic design. After graduating, I spent some time in the design industry where I made and crafted photo-books and spent time instructing painting classes.
Teaching has been very rewarding for me. I am very excited to be a part of a team of parents, students, teachers, and staff that make up Cedar Hill Prep!
Grade 4 Student Pranavi at the United Nations! Peace Day celebrations took place at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday, September 20th. CHP 4th grader, Pranavi Sivakumar, had an opportunity to participate in this International Day of Peace Student Observance. This memorable experience for Pranavi is best described in her own words: “We waited in line for almost three hours. When we finally were able to sit down inside the U.N., we listened to many speeches about climate change. I also met my dance teacher there. She performed very nicely. I was paying close attention. I was the most excited person in my life!”
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.
