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!

Preschool, Elementary, or Middle School — When Does Private School Make The Most Sense? There is no question about whether or not a private school will significantly impact your child’s intellectual, personal, and interpersonal development. However, quite often, parents ask themselves: Does it make more sense to start early, or can I “skip” the first years and start in middle school when it starts counting towards their academic resume?
