I began my journey in working with younger children and their families since I was in high school and that was how I discovered my passion. From high school, I decided to pursue my passion and attended San Diego State University to acquire a degree that was related to working with children and families. While I was in college, I also began working at a child development center as a teacher and I immediately knew that I was at the right place. Through that experience, it made me realize how important and crucial the role of an early childhood educator plays in a child’s life. I graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Development and a minor in Counseling and Social Change. I also gained experience in working as an administrative assistant to the director and realized that I wanted to grow and learn more about the administrative field in a school setting. I love working with younger children and their families and witnessing them blossom and progress as they go through their early childhood education.
