Emilia has been a part of our Carousel family since February 2001, and has gained over nine years of experience working directly with children with special needs, as well as typically-developing children. She has assisted the infant center, and worked as a Behavioral Aide in several different classrooms, including our preschool, Kindergarten/1stgrade, and 2nd/3rd grade classrooms, and she also has experience working in our transportation department. In August 2010, Emilia became the Office Assistant at our Preschool & Infant Center. In this position, she coordinates with the Site Director, as well as teachers and other staff, assisting with daily operations and general administrative tasks. Some of her duties include helping organize school-wide activities, tracking attendance, handling staff issues, and communicating with parents and caregivers, often providing Spanish translation when necessary. Emilia has taken Early Childhood Education courses at UCLA, and her previous classroom experience also makes her a valuable resource for ideas and advice for both teachers and aides.
