Miss Maria has been with Little Oak since the beginning of 2016. Miss Maria attended San Jose City College, Mission College and Gavilan College. Maria enjoys reading, nature walks and cooking her family’s favorite dishes. She also loves to spend time with her children and to play and watch her granddaughters grow. At Little Oak, Maria loves to sing and read short stories with the children and to see each child’s personality. She loves speaking Spanish to the children as well. Her favorite part about being a teacher here at Little Oak is to walk in every morning and have the children greet her with their beautiful smiles.
