My husband and I are from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and moved to Oviedo in 2000. We have three teenage children. I was fortunate to be able to be a stay-at-home mom for several years to nurture them and watch them grow.
I have had the privilege of working with special needs and preschool children and have taught 3rd grade Faith Formation classes. I am thrilled to be part of this amazing team of teachers at UCELC. I am thankful for the opportunity to be working in a loving, nurturing Christian environment where children learn and experience new challenges that will help build their confidence while they play. I love my job. Every day is different. I’m excited to learn and explore with your children this year! I believe I’m where I need to be according to God’s plan.

I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States at the age of 7. I lived in Queens, New York, where I grew up and went to school. I moved to Orlando in 1992 and have 3 beautiful children. I am very family oriented and very involved in my children’s lives. They are my first priority. I was a stay-at-home mom until I became an Early Childhood Educator. I decided to teach preschool when my daughter started attending. I wanted to be involved, so I volunteered and did some substitute work. I realized that being a teacher is what I really want to do, so I got my Florida Staff Credential certification. I want to work with children and make a difference in their lives, by teaching them while they are learning and playing in the process. My greatest joy is to see their progress and growth throughout the school year. I have worked in a preschool environment for many years teaching 3-year olds and VPK. I am blessed to be a part of the UCELC family!

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 University Carillon 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!
