Hello! My name is Vanessa Martinez. I am a new teacher at Kids Under Construction this year, but not new to teaching. I received my degree in Child Development and began teaching in 2003. I was able to teach for a couple of years before taking a break to stay home and raise my two daughters. When they reached elementary age, I decided to return back to teaching. I was so glad to be back in the classroom. Over all, I have taught preschool for 9 years, and look forward to many more in the future.
