Sycamore Class   |   Sycamore Support Teacher

I was born in Jalisco, Mexico as were both of my parents. My family and I moved to California when I was 3 years old. I am the oldest of four siblings. I grew up in San Leandro and I still continue to live there. In High School, I attended vocational classes with a focus on Careers in Education. Through this program, I interned in a family home daycare, kindergarten and first grade classroom. After High school, I began to take Early Childhood Development classes. In 2018, I completed my AMI Assistant to Infancy training with Montessori Northwest. For 2 years, I worked as a Montessori Infant Head teacher. I’ve also worked as a Nanny to a wonderful kid for 3 years. I enjoy watching and helping children learn how to be better versions of themselves. My goal is for children to build confidence by being independent and be excited to learn everyday. During my free time,  I enjoy reading fiction books, sun bathing, making healthy meals and spending time with my family and friends.
