Greetings! Working with children has always been a passion of mine. I have been working here at Cadence Academy Preschool for 8 years now, and I must say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In December of this year, I will obtain my BBA in Economics and Finance. One of my future goals is to continue to work with children and eventually move to the corporate office in Arizona. I am a mother myself, so I know how difficult it can be finding the right place for your family. We have some of the most amazing teachers here and we're ready to take care of your little ones. I look forward in meeting you and welcome to our family!
