Hola! My Name is Sonia Mendez and I am thrilled to join UMD Children's Place as the Assistant Toddler Teacher.
I have chosen a career path in Early Childhood Education. I have earned a certificate of completion in Infant and Toddler from South Texas College in 2001. I have worked with all age groups from birth to school age in Child Care Centers around the area. I am bilingual in English and Spanish.
Childcare is my passion. It is my goal as a caregiver to provide a safe, caring, and loving environment in which children can flourish. Teaching them daily, learning experiences through play that promote, encourage, and support language, cognitive, physical and social/emotional development.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three kids. We enjoy cooking out and supporting our kids in sports activities.
