AA in Early Childhood Development (in progress)

Hello! My name is Vanessa. During my first semester in college, I decided to take an Early Childhood Development class as an elective towards my Biology major. Soon after being exposed to the incredible learning journey children have from birth, I was intrigued to learn more. The teacher suggested I apply to work with kids but I was nervous because I had only worked as a babysitter prior to that. After experiencing how fun and exciting working with children can be, I decided to change my major to study Early Childhood Development.

I am currently a student at Chabot College in Hayward working to obtain my AA in Early Childhood Development. I also plan to continue my professional development an obtain my Masters in Childhood Development.

As a teacher, my goal is to create an environment where children learn and grow to reach their fullest potential. Each moment is an incredible opportunity for a child's learning. Early childhood education is the base and foundation for these children in their school pathway. It is my goal to provide a strong foundation and help children learn how wonderful the world can be so they are ready to tackle any obstacle in their way. I strive to continue my professional skills to give the best to the children in my class.

My name is Alejandra Espinoza. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I received my Associate Teacher Permit last year and plan to continue my education in the Early Childhood Education field.

I chose this career pathway after working as a nanny for four years. In high school, I took Childhood Development courses and loved it. After high school, I joined Canada College and continued my courses. In 2015, I started to volunteer at a preschool where I later became employed for 6 years. I enjoy working with children to get to see their enthusiasm for life! I look forward to being a part of the Kids Konnect team and continuing to provide a nurturing environment for the children and families.

I currently live in Menlo Park with my husband and two young children, When I’m not keeping busy with kids teaching them life skills in three ways: instructions, modeling and step by step (practice is important), you can find me playing tennis in a nearby tennis court.

BA in Family and Consumer Science

Hello! My name is Kimberly Yoguez and I am honored to join the Kids Konnect family and community. I attended and graduated from San Francisco State University and received a bachelors of art degree with my major in Family and Consumer Science and my minor in Special Education. My experience of working with children varies from working as a registered behavioral technician to several volunteering opportunities that I've had. I have worked with children and families from all ages and walks of life, but pre-k remains as my favorite age group to work with.

Since the first years of life are so crucial to a child's development, I believe that it is extremely important to provide young children with enriching experiences and curriculum. I truly admire how quickly young children grow, learn, and of course their silliness and how adorable they are. It is my overall goal to provide children and families with a great pre-k experience that they will cherish for a lifetime.

During my free time I love to spend time with my dog son and family. I also enjoy going to the gym, going on hikes, traveling, and baking.

AA in Early Childhood Education (in progress)

My name is Nancy. I have a teaching certificate from City College of San Francisco and am currently working to obtain my AA degree in Early childhood education. I have accumulated many years of childcare experience. I am very interested in teaching young children and have always enjoyed working with the very young. I find their enthusiasm to be contagious and always changing. I attach great importance to the overall development of each child. Each day I attempt to create an environment for learning and discovery. I believe that music can cultivate temperament, dancing is stimulation for the whole body and games are the starting point of interpersonal relationships. I am looking forward to working with and enjoying your child this coming year.

Ms. Jasmine

Substitute Teacher

Hello Kids Konnect families! My name is Jasmine Eubanks and I have always been passionate about helping others. After finishing high school, I went straight into a 4-year university. I completed my BA in psychology with a minor in sociology because I enjoyed learning about people and how we react whether socially or mentally to the world around us. Toward the end of my career at the University of California Merced, I took a few classes about growth pertaining to all different kinds of children. After finishing school, I went directly into assisting as a Preschool/ Daycare Instructor. I enjoyed my time which later led me into working as an Instructor with Special Needs students. I was able to teach things like social skills and everyday living skills which come so naturally to most.

As a teenager I was a leader and always held good grades. Because of these grades, I was given the opportunity to travel to Ghana, Africa and give back to their communities. There I learned the importance of working with a team and how important it is to share what you know. Working with young people not only allows me to share what I know but also continue to learn.

Outside of work I take what I learn working in Education and apply it to my everyday life. I have not started my own journey of motherhood just yet but I have been blessed to have such a big family with a lot of cousins with who I spend a lot of time. I’ve been known to be the big cousin who takes my family out to have all the fun but also the cousin to show them right from wrong. I enjoy interactive activities, things that keep you physical but also moments to just relax.

I am grateful to become a member of the Kids Konnect team and hope that my journey continues to move forward as I help the students and as they teach me.

BSc Sociology with a minor in Adolescence and Community Education


Hey! My name is Maddy Beach and I work summer and winter breaks at Kids Konnect. I have always had a passion to work with kids. Growing up, my grandmother had a daycare and I loved helping out with the little ones. All through high school I babysat and was a part-time nanny for multiple families. I am the middle of five kids and love being around family. Child development is something I am very passionate about, the first couple years of a child's life is where they develop the most, they learn life skills like how to play with others, follow directions and socialize with peers.

I studied sociology and minored in adolescence and community education at University of Arizona. I like working with children because they are our next generation and are so much fun. Being able to work with young kids is really a dream come true. My goal as a preschool teacher is to give each child a fun, safe and loving environment where they can learn and grow.
