I began working at the East Los Angeles College Child Development Center in 1981. I wore many hats before being selected as the Director of this amazing program, including teacher assistant, coordinator of the food program, manager of the State Preschool Grant, substitute teacher, and teacher. In all of my years working in the field of early education, what stands out are the children, family, students, and staff that I have had the pleasure of working with.
I am an alumni of East Los Angeles College (A.A.), California State University Los Angeles (B.A. in Child Development), and the University of LaVerne (M.S. in Early Childhood Education). I take pleasure in learning new and exciting ideas and concepts, as well as meeting and getting to know professionals early childhood education.
Working at East Los Angeles College has provided me many opportunities to grow professionally and personally. The community, Campus faculty and staff, and children and families continue to bring joy to my life.
