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.
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!”
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.
