As Director of Saint Paul Early Education. I am grateful for giving us the opportunity to participate in your children’s development and education. I am a community psychologist and my expertise is in prevention models in domestic platforms issues. The biggest reason for me to work in the field of child education stems from my spiritual faith. I stand with a verse from James 1:1 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights. My passion is to serve children and “Glorify the Name of God” as children are gifts from heaven. I feel we, as adults are responsible for giving innovative knowledge to our children, while incorporating it with Christian values.
I also hold multiple degrees in the domain of education and have been working in various capacities within the organization for many years now. I graduated from University of Massachusetts, Lowell with a Master degree in Community Social Psychology. My research thesis on “Different Learning Styles of Students with Special Needs” was successfully applied in various schools. My other research articles in the field of child psychology, educational psychology, and community psychology were incorporated in the communities and schools in Middlesex County. I was also awarded a federal grant for my project ‘Battle for Justice’ that focused on teenagers from underprivileged backgrounds. I have previously worked in Human Services organizations, Early Interventions programs, as well as within University of Massachusetts - Lowell. I hold multiple certifications to work as a counselor in human services and crisis organizations.
Beside my professional life I love toddlers and children. I have nephew, Ezekiel, who’s like a son to me. This preschool motto from the verse of James 1:1 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights was influenced by his birth, since he was a miracle in my sister and family’s life. Children tend to love me because I am friendly, energetic, and always love to play and run with them. My favorite interactions with the kids are the dramatic plays that help create a strong bond between us. I can connect with children personalities and my fun-loving nature is what they admire.
Our school mission to “Glorify the Name of God” can only be attained if we work together with parents to enhance their child’s development and learning. It will be my honor to work with you for your child’s schooling, inculcate human values in them, as well as polish their STEM skills.
EEC Certifications: Infant Teacher, Lead Teacher Preschool, Pre-K & Director 1
I am Joselnia. I was born in the beautiful island of Dominican Republic. Back in 2011, I started my career in the Education field, I worked as a teacher assistant for a private center. A few months later, I uncovered my huge passion for teaching children, and realized how much of an impact I made in their lives. I then decided to become a preschool teacher and started my long-term career in Early Childhood Education. And now I am an EEC certified lead teacher and director.
I believe that every child is unique; and so is his or her path to success. Each day of a child’s life is an opportunity to experience adventures and to make new discoveries, Children gain a better understand of their surrounding and the world around them by playing games with peers, exploring the outdoors and though constant communication. Without a doubt, these experiences will prepare them to be successful, more confident and true friends.
My goal as an educator is to promote the physical, social, emotional; and of course, the cognitive development of every child that I work with. My classroom is designed to meet every child’s needs through self-directed games and teacher lead activities.
I look forward to seeing you very soon in my class!

EEC Certifications: Lead Teacher Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K & Director 1, 2.
My name is Miss Nancy and I would like to welcome you to the Infant classroom. I am very excited to begin this journey of learning and growing with your baby. I want to take the time to introduce myself to you. I have been in the childcare field for over 14 years and have worked with all age groups from infancy all the way up to school age children. During that time I found my niche in teaching and that is with infants. I currently have an associates degree in business administration and am only two classes away from obtaining my associates in early education. I have worked in many different centers, in many different locations with all different family dynamics and ethnicities. My experience also includes working with children who have special needs.
I enjoy watching the milestones that each individual child conquers at their own pace and am happy to be a helping hand in fostering those triumphs. I am a fully committed teacher and enjoy feeding, diapering, and keeping your baby safe but I also enjoy creating developmentally appropriate curriculum even at an infant level. As you will notice over time everything we do in my class has purpose. A simple game such as peek-a-boo for instance, helps infants with object permanence (its the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they can’t be seen/heard), as well as helps build gross motor skills, strengthens visual tracking and encourages social development.
I love to get to know my students as well as their families. Communication is imperative and I always welcome any suggestions that you, the parents, who know your child best, can give me while your child is in my care.
If you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me no matter how insignificant you may find it to be. I hope you are as excited as I am to embark on this new learning experience for your child, with me.
