I have been working with children for over 13 years. I've been a teacher and a manager, and I love it all! I truly enjoy being apart of our families' lives every day! Ever since I was a little girl I always knew I wanted to work with children. I believe all kids deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. We strive every day to provide a lasting education in each child that comes through our center. My goal is to make a great impression that will stay with them forever.

I started working with children 15 years ago and have been with La Petite for four years. I taught English to preschoolers in my home country. I love working with kids - it might be challenging, but it's very rewarding. My three-year-old son and I love being part of the La Petite family.

I always knew I wanted to work with children. I'm from Puerto Rico and moved to Florida in 2002 with my loving husband and kids. It is a privilege to be a part of one of the most important stages in a child's life.
