    Meet the new staff at the Alternative High School.  We are excited to welcome them into our learning community.

    Cameron Crawford

    Mr. Cameron Crawford

    English 9, 10, 11, 12, Journalism, HR 6

    I am beyond thrilled and grateful to join the Cherry Hill Alternative High School community. Originally from the state of Oklahoma, I have lived on the East Coast since 2003. I started my career in international development and government relations in Washington, DC, but discovered along the way that my true passion is teaching and making an impact in the lives of young people. My teaching career began in Philadelphia, and during that time I earned my Master of Education (M.Ed) in Special Education degree. I am a singer and writer of poetry. I hold firm beliefs and interest in redemption, equity and justice. My own proud identity as a Persian-American makes me uniquely poised to see the world from a different perspective. I am happily married and a proud father of an inquisitive, creative and caring six year old daughter. 

     Imani Shivers

    Ms. Imani Shivers

    Educational Assistant

    I am a recent graduate from Rutgers University. There, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Dance from the Mason Gross School of the Arts Dance Department. I also graduated with a minor in Sociology. I have been a dance instructor for six years, which has allowed me to teach and influence young minds in a positive way. I am  also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am very excited to be a part of the Alternative High School, and look forward to the school year.
