I have two wonderful children of my own. My daughter is 20 Years old and attends the University of Houston, and my son is 12 years old and attends Davis Elementary. I’m so blessed as a mother and they make me proud on a daily basis. In my spare time I enjoy painting, reading books, watching movies, spending time with my family. My favorite children’s book is “Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom.” I love working for Kiddie Academy because of the way the school is academically based, organized, professional and has a positive atmosphere. I also like the hands on approach and they do not depend on gadgets to keep the children engaged. It has been so rewarding and I learn something new every day!
