Fun fact about me 

When Fall comes around, I like to make pesto with herbs from my garden. It’s a nice reminder of summer during winter times.

I love working with children and their families because 
It’s gratifying to see them evolve and flourish despite the adversity most of them face. It’s essential that we look after and care for our children since they are the citizens of tomorrow.
