I was born and raised in Boyle Heights. I began working at the East Los An geles Child Development Center in 2001. I am currently a Co-Teacher and work closely with 3-5 year olds. I am an Alumni of East Los Angeles College (A.A.) and the University of LaVerne (B.S. in Child Development). I am currently a graduate student at Pacific Oaks College, where I am completing a Master's degree in Human Development.
I am aware that children come from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds and different family configurations. This is why it is important to validate, embrace, and celebrate the diversity that children and families bring into the classroom. As an educator I provide my students stimulating and developmentally appropriate first-hand learning experiences that support children's interests, curiosities, and life experiences.
