Primary 4 Assistant Guide & EAP Guide

Hello Athena families!

I am so happy to be a part of this lovely and very close community. I've been at Athena for almost two years and I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you and your loving children.

I started working with children from a young age in my church community. A friend
introduced me to group child care and I realized how much I love being with kids, watching them grow, and watching them take in everything around them like little sponges! I then worked at a small Spanish immersion school with children ages 3-5. and I knew that they’re the age group I most wanted to work with. Working at Athena Montessori is a new experience and I love the independence and hands-on learning Montessori has to offer the children.

I grew up in Mexico and moved to Austin in 2001 and have lived here ever since. I love
spending my weekends with my family and going to church. I am one of five children in my family and have a dog named Pepper. One thing I think is crucial is the relationship I have with my family, therefore I will always do my best to get to know your children and you.
