It has been my privilege to teach Kindergarten at Cedar Hill Prep since the September 2003-2004 school year. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a Specialization in Early Childhood. Before coming to CHP, I taught grades PreK-3 – Kindergarten and served as an administrator while teaching a Writer’s Workshop for 3rd and 4th graders. I am a true believer that experience teaches you everything.
Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach. My classroom environment is an open, trusting environment where the students are engaged as they are encouraged to question, contribute, and launch out… to pursue their individual interests and talents as they encounter new experiences and gain insights and different approaches to learning. It is completely thrilling for me to watch my students grasp new ideas and apply them to other parts of their lives! That is true learning!

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.
