MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS
I am excited to join the Middle School faculty at Cedar Hill Prep as a Language Arts teacher.
I have been teaching throughout New Jersey and Florida for over ten years and find it to be an incredibly rewarding and joyful profession. I love to educate, inspire, and enrich young minds and my own each day.
Despite a former career in Computer Science, having attended NYIT, NJIT, as well as Rutgers, I obtained my teaching credentials and a Bachelor of Arts in English with honors from Georgian Court University. I am a proud member of the International Honor Society in Education, International English Honor Society, and was President of GCU’s National Leadership Honor Society.

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.
