I am CHP’s full-time School Nurse. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Early Childhood Education, a Nursing Degree, and the New Jersey License for Practice as a Registered Professional Nurse.
Throughout my professional career, I have always worked with children. Before coming to CHP, I worked for a private pediatric group where I was able to experience first-hand how to develop great relationships between families and health care professionals to provide the best care for patients.
In most situations, children look for a nurturing individual to help them feel better, and I strive to be that person for them. My main goal is to keep your children happy and healthy during their day at school.
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!”
