Karla Leyte-Vidal


I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I moved to Florida in 1998, shortly after getting married. We have three kids that keep us busy. I came to UCELC as a parent in 2004 and joined the team in 2007. I have taught and supported at all preschool levels and for the past few years I've been doing physical education. I'm truly blessed to be part of the UCELC team.

I moved to Oviedo when I was 4 years old. I graduated from Oviedo High School and attended Seminole State College where I got my general AA. I then packed up my car and moved to New York, just to see if I can make it on my own. I eventually moved back after realizing life without Disney, the beach, and greenery all year long is not the life for me!

I am a proud mama to my eleven year old fur baby, a pit bull/ lab mix, that I rescued at only a couple weeks old. She has taught me to use my voice to help those who don't have one!

I have always had a passion for working with young kids. The reward of watching little ones learn and grow throughout the year is the best! I have been blessed with the opportunity to work at a few schools including UCELC in 2006 and the UCUMC nursery (my very first job) teaching children ages 1-4.

I am excited to be back and apart of the UCELC family and cannot wait to start this new journey with you and your family!

I was born and raised in Oviedo, FL where I grew up attending UCUMC with my family. Since 2011, I have been working with the UCUMC Children's Ministry team and recently was promoted to the Clubhouse Coordinator. I previously received my AA degree in Elementary Education from Seminole State College. Currently, I attend the University of Central of Florida and will earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. As the youngest of four girls, I enjoy hanging out with my family and my niece. As a Florida girl, I'm a Disney enthusiast and visit the parks on a weekly basis. I've always had a passion for teaching young children, and look forward to starting this new journey at UCELC!
