Ms. Minnie began working at our sister school (since closed) in 1999. She actually “fell into” child care as she had nieces attending and wanted to be with them at school. Little did she know that she was a natural teacher and would wind up dedicating her professional life to early childhood education!
In 2010, Minerva graduated from Pima Community College with her Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. She feels that her college education supplements nicely her 11+ years of classroom experience. Since graduation she has continued her education and hopes, some day, to graduate from the University of Arizona with a degree in ECE.
Whenever we can’t find Miss Minnie all we need to do is look in the Cottontail room – she’s probably playing or cuddling with our infants who have an extra special place in Minnie’s heart.
