Hi my name is Monica!
I am very excited to be joining the teaching team at Harwood Hills. I've been in the child care field for almost 20 years starting with babysitting when I was younger up until recently when I was a full time nanny for two children. Before coming to Harwood Hills, I was a preschool teacher and a teacher’s assistant at a preschool in Los Altos. I really enjoy teaching four and five year olds and seeing them develop into independent children that are ready for kindergarten.
Outside of teaching, my passions are spending time with my husband and three children, ages 7, 12, and 17. I enjoy cooking and baking and hope to include that in my teaching. I went to De Anza College and earned some of my child development credits there. I am eager to take more classes towards my child development degree. I look forward to learning more about the children and families here at Harwood Hills.
