Kilby E. S.


I am happy to be back at Kilby and supporting the 2 year old classroom in the
long-term substitute position. I have worked for Kilby in the academic year of
2014-15. I left Kilby E.S., to work for Prince William County/Early intervention (Infant
and Toddlers’ Connection). I understand both sides of the equation, and I am here to
help you in this new experience with public schooling.

My experience with children began at an early age, I enjoyed being a teacher.
It started at my mom’s kitchen table, when I tutor children she cared for after-school.
As my skills developed and parents benefit from their child’s growth in academics; I
started to enjoy learning and how fun it was. Children were a big motivation, and
therefore, decided to study teaching. Special Needs was another interest of mine, as I
learned the need of families and children. I completed my internship in SPED and
worked in Pre-K for 2 years. I now have a combination of 10 plus years in Education,
and earned my master’s degree in Early Childhood Education (PreK-2), from City
College of New York/CUNY in 2013.

I have lived in Woodbridge since 2009, I move here from Manhattan, NYC. I
have been happily married for the past 8 years with Mr. Ponce from El Salvador. We
enjoy spending time by visiting: historic sites, food festivals, antique cars and family
gatherings. I look forward in meeting you all and working together in your child’s
academic needs. Thank you.

Honor to be here!
