Director and Lead Teacher
My name is Amanda Estelita. I currently have a Site Supervisor Permit, my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education with a certificate in Family Communication Skills, and I will have a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and a Minor in Special Education May 2020. I will be continuing my education towards a Master's in Special Education and for a Moderate to Severe and Multi-Subject Teaching Credential. I previously worked for one of Stanford's onsite preschools in the Bay Area and have over 15 years of experience working with young children.
Not only do I have one of the most rewarding occupations where I get to share in your child's discoveries, experiences, and successes, but I have the pleasure of sharing it with you, their family - the most important people to them in their whole world. I truly believe that families are a child's first teacher and I have the fortune of partnering with you to share in those experiences.
My name is Tonya Kline. I have been working with young children for over thirty years and I believe kids learn best when having fun and as a teacher I am here to help them succeed. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and I have my Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's Teacher Permit.
My name is Lusia De La Torre and I go by Lusy. I have an Associate Teacher Permit and I am continuing my education in the Early Childhood Education field because I believe that I can make a difference in the lives of children. I hope to become a preschool director one day.
