Quick facts: I have a 2 year old son, Kalvin Lucas. I love the beach, but probably because I'm a Leo born in the summer :). I speak Spanish. My ethnic background is half from the Dominican Republic and other half from Peru---born here in New Jersey. I've been in the education field as a paraprofessional from High School age to Preschool since I was 17 years old. Additionally, I've taught very young learners in child-care centers from 1.5-5 years old and special needs students in transition programs up to age 22.
