I am dedicated to making sure all families feel welcomed  and included at Academia Elze. I really enjoy communicating with families and I have developed excellent communication and listening skills through 8 years of experience working with different people and cultures. The focus of my Liberal Arts was Education. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles of the students when they learn something new and they share this with their families and teachers!

I am a native of Ecuador. I have been working in early childhood education for the last 13 years and I perform my job with love and dedication to the students. When I came to the USA, I started and still continue to take early education classes including my Child Development Associate (CDA). I really enjoy being part of each student's growth and development.
