3RD GRADE TEACHER / MATH AND SCIENCE
I have been a member of the dedicated parent and teacher community at Cedar Hill Prep since 2007 and currently teach 3rd grade Math and Science. I have a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics and Telecommunication. Before joining Cedar Hill Prep, I worked in the IT industry.
I love teaching because helping children learn and grow provides the greatest satisfaction. It is rewarding to see students put the learning pieces together to take on more complicated assignments. I enjoy teaching them organizational and study skills to help them become independent learners. The world is full of opportunities to learn, and I hope to give the children in my class the desire to become enthusiastic learners for a lifetime.

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.
