Wendy is so excited to be coming on board as a teacher for the Jr-Kindergarten class at New Song Christian Academy. Wendy has had many different experiences working with children from running her own home daycare, working as a Girl Scout leader, volunteering at her children’ schools and teaching at Good Samaritan Christian Academy. Wendy loves teaching preschool age children as they explore and learn new things every day. She moved with her family to Henderson from Southern California in 2007. Wendy enjoys spending time outdoors camping and hiking with her husband, Adam, and her children Megan and Brandon. She is fortunate to have this opportunity to work with your children and to get to know the families this school year.
My professional training and experience has given me the tools necessary to create an enriching learning environment and provide active learning opportunities for kindergarten students to internalize learning. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I then continued my studies at UNLV and earned my Master’s degree in Education, with an emphasis in Special Education. I have worked in the field of early childhood education for 10 years. I have a supportive husband and two fantastic boys. We moved to the Anthem area of Henderson 11 years ago and we absolutely love this community!
I am very excited to work with the Junior Kindergarten class and become a new member of the New Song Christian Academy. I was born and raised in Ecuador and moved to the United States in 2005. My husband, Jose, is retired Air Force. In 2013, God blessed us with a beautiful daughter, Alina. I studied computer science in Ecuador and international languages after moving to Las Vegas. I worked with the Clark County School District as a teacher assistant for kindergarten. I look forward to meeting you and your children.
