WORLD LANGUAGE TEACHER / FRENCH
I am very excited to join the Cedar Hill Prep faculty. My passion for teaching started 18 years ago with York Board of Education in Ontario, Canada as a substitute teacher and as an International Language Program teacher, teaching Language Arts, Math, and French as a second Language to Elementary and Middle School students.
This provided me the opportunity to then work as a French Teacher at one of the largest private schools in Toronto. For 9 years, I served as a French teacher and department head for grades 4-8.
Creativity is the key to teaching. Using technology, arts and crafts, and music will motivate my students to learning the French language and help them succeed.
Cedar Hill Prep Debate Wins Again! Garden State Debate League held their third inter school debate meet at Cedar Hill Prep School. Forty teams participated with 130 participants. The topics for debate were: Disney Movies Do More Harm Than Good; Ban Single Use Plastic Bags; Major League Baseball’s Plan to Cut Minor League Teams is Justified; All U.S. Presidential Primaries Should Be Held on the Same Day. Four teams from Cedar Hill Prep School finished in the top 10. Cedar Hill Prep School again won trophies for top school in the league and most number of wins. Congratulations debaters!
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.
