Miss Maria started teaching preschool in 1987 while she was attending Loyola Marymount University. She received her teaching credential in 1990 and taught elementary school in San Diego County for 9 ½ years. During this period, she took classes toward her administrative credential from both CSUSM and National University.

Maria is happily married to a Long Beach Fireman. When they moved to Long Beach in 1999, she took some time to stay at home and raise her three boys. In 2006, she was hired as a preschool teacher at the school. In July 2007, she became the director of Discovery Preschool. In her spare time, she enjoys sewing, scrap booking, camping and reading.

“ It is as privilege to be given the opportunity to instill a love of learning in children. I am truly blessed.”
