Joined MVPNS in 2007 as an assistant teacher. She has a B.S. from Loma Linda University and earned Early Childhood units from Foothill College. Wilma's passion for early childhood education developed while she was a parent at MVPNS with her two daughters. Wilma enjoys sharing the wonder of nature with children -- whether nurturing pumpkins in the garden, raising silk worms, or caring for the school guinea pig. Wilma’s exuberance, warmth, and outgoing personality help children overcome separation anxiety and plunge into preschool. Both parents and children look forward to lively conversations and lots of learning with Teacher Wilma, who daily shares her gift of making each person she meets feel special.
