From an early age, Viviana was entrusted with the responsibility of caring for her younger siblings. Once her siblings grew up, her family and friends continued to rely on her care for their children. Viviana went to Elgin High School but received her G.E.D. She began to work for The Ivy Academy of Early Learning in May 2014 and celebrated her 3-year anniversary this year.
She has had enlightening experience working with children and seeing the progress they make though the years. Being bilingual, she enjoys helping children learn English and Spanish. “It’s a great achievement for me to see them grow up learning a second language.” Ms. Perez loves to work with children and takes online in-services to educate herself in all the early learning education aspects. She plans to acquire her CDA.
