I have been teaching for over 13 years. I started as an aide in an infant program then as a lead teacher in their two-year-old room. I came to Golden Poppy as a leopard room teacher in 2014, Bear room teacher in 2015. In 2018 I became the lead teacher in the Lion room where I have been teaching ever since. I love seeing the excitement when my student learns new things. I have a special interest in teaching my students Spanish, my native language. I teach Spanish as an extra curriculum class as well as incorporate it into my regular classroom curriculum. It is so rewarding to see the kids excitement when speaking a second language. I feel very lucky to be able to
have my daughter attend the Golden Poppy. I know she will get a great early learning experience.
