Lourdes worked in our RIDE Pre-K classroom for the 2013-2014 school year through the AmeriCorps Volunteer program. She is excited to be starting her second year at Mariposa working as a Program Assistant for both the RIDE Pre-K and Preschool Classrooms. Lourdes is fluent in Spanish and is currently working towards her TA assistant certificate.
Lourdes is the Co-Director and Treasurer of the Society of Culture Columbia America Folklore Group and helps to support their Decorating Committee as well.
“Working in the classroom I see how important it is for the children to be in an environment where they can discover the world around them in a happy and safe place. Working with children is my passion. I love what I do.”
