MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / MATH
I am a Middle School Math teacher at Cedar Hill Prep. I started my career in Accounting and Business in Miami, after earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and MIS, and an MBA in MIS, both from Florida International University. While working in the business sector, I found my true calling was helping others and teaching students. Luckily, NYC was looking for Career Changers to go into the field of Education. Through a NYC Teaching Fellowship, I earned my Master’s Degree in Education in Mathematics while teaching at-risk students in Manhattan, NYC.
I truly enjoy working with the Middle School students at CHP, teaching Math in a way that they understand, challenging them, integrating it to the real world, and generating a love for the subject!

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.
