Hi, my name is Mia Maldonado, I am the lead teacher in the Giraffes classroom. I am the eldest of 6 children. Naturally, I am a born teacher. I have been working in childcare for over 13 years, and I absolutely love it. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. My goal for the Giraffes class is to enhance my student’s self-esteem, so they can develop and grow into confident individuals.
