I was a bilingual preschool teacher in public schools in Orlando, Florida for 18 years with plenty of references! I earned my AA in Early Childhood at Valencia College in Orl., Fl. I am a North Carolina FCCH licensed provider, organized LLC, and CPR and First Aid certified. I relocated to North Carolina in September of 2013 with my husband after he was offered a job with the NC State University College of Design. I have a 27 year old son who is in the Air Force in Arizona, a 24 year old daughter who works as a medical assistant at Wake Hospital Pediatrics, and a lovely 4 year old grandson. I believe in planting the seeds of learning early and, it is my goal here at Noah’s Ark Learning Center to build a strong, healthy self-esteem and create a positive self-worth within each child that will remain throughout his/her life.
Noah’s Ark Learning Center practices sound Christian values, that will guide each child on a journey of discovery in a loving, nurturing, safe, and fun learning environment!
