Yessenia is proud of her Ecuadorian culture and loves to share it with the people around her. She has always had a love for children, and when she arrived in America she discovered her talent and passion for teaching. Yessenia graduated with a law degree from the National University of Chimborazo in Ecuador, and here in the U.S. she earned her Childhood Developmental Association Certification in Preschool Education. She believes for children, learning is achieved when they are given the opportunity to actively engage and discover the world around them. This non-traditional education approach permits the development of humanitarianism and environmental awareness which we need in our society. Children grow to enjoy learning in collaboration with their friends in contact with nature. Yessenia has always loved spending time outdoors, hiking, tubing in the river and bike riding.
