ms. hilda // toddler teacher

Favorite Color: Purple

Hobbies: Playing Board Games, Going to Concerts, & Disneyland

Favorite Childhood Memory: Going out of town with my family every summer. We got to be in about 25 U.S. states and 5 in Mexico. We also used to go to Disneyland every spring.

My Vision of the Child: I really think we as adults learn a lot more from children than what children can learn from us. We are not here to shape little robots, but to assist them in putting their hands in whatever they are interested in.

Bio: I grew up in Tijuana, Mexico and came to live in San Diego when I was 26. Before that, I crossed the border every day to go to school and work. I have always liked being surrounded by children. My friends and family always told me that I should be a teacher, even before I considered it. After babysitting several of my nieces & nephews, & finishing school to be a dental assistant, I realized that what I really wanted to do for the rest of my life was to be in front of a classroom with children. Even though I realized this a little later in life, I could not be any happier with the decision to change my career.
