I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. I came to New York 7 years ago with no knowledge of English but now I consider myself to be fluent in both English and Spanish. Since I arrived here I have been working really hard to succeed in my education and that is why I managed to get my Associates Degree in Arts from Hostos community College and recently my Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Early Childhood education at Lehman College. As a requirement of some of my classes in college I had the opportunity to visit public schools and learn a little more about the education system from the inside. I have always been interested in the development of children. I have worked in a family daycare for many years and have been teaching children for over 5 years at the Sunday school where we do endless activities based on previous readings. During my free time I like to dance and visit new places. Now my greatest enthusiasm is working at Bilingual Nest and being part of your children’s life.
