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.

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.

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.

AS in Early Childhood Education and my AS-transfer in mathematics (in progress)

Hi, my name is Brittany Padilla. I have 7 years of experience working with children and 1 year experience working with infants. I am currently working towards completing my AS in Early Childhood Education and my AS-transfer in mathematics. I have learned so much through the ECE courses I have taken and am excited to continue learning more about child development. 

I have always loved working with children and infants. It brings me so much joy watching them grow and develop new skills. I am looking forward to joining the Kids Konnect team and meeting the children and their families. I am extremely excited to guide these young minds and to help their curiosity, ideas, and personality grow. As a teacher, I hope to bring joy and fun ways of learning to the classroom.

In my free time, I love to spend time with my dogs, friends, and family. I also enjoy trying to find new shows or movies to watch on Netflix and Hulu.

BA in Psychology and Child-Adolescent Development (ChAD) 

Hello! My name is Moi and I'm super excited to be joining Kids Konnect. I'm a graduate of San Jose State University with Bachelor's Degrees in both Psychology and Child-Adolescent Development (ChAD) with a concentration in Early Childhood. I'm fascinated at how quickly children learn to communicate and interact with other people, especially those who are different from them. Those courses inspired me to take on another major in ChAD.

Having taken care of children of all ages since the beginning of high school, it was important for me to find the right age group: I love preschool! The tinies always show huge growth in little time with adult help and facilitation. I have always loved making artwork with the kids and providing various materials and watching their creativity flow. I'm excited to be working with preschoolers, and I hope to connect more with Kids Konnect's children and their families.

Outside of preschool, I love to play basketball, work out, organize my bullet journal, listen to music, watch anime, and eat sour candy.

BA in Child and Adolescent Development (pending)

Hello! My name is Amanda Redila. I am so excited to be joining the Kids Konnect community. I'm currently in my last semester working towards my BA in Child and Adolescent Development emphasizing in early childhood, with a minor in Asian American studies at San Francisco State University. I’m super excited to put what I’ve learned thus far into practice. 

I’ve always had a strong passion for working with children. I believe that working with children does not include just them, but it also includes their families, ensuring the educator-family relationship is in the child’s best interests. The best part when working with children is being able to guide them while they develop new skills. I enjoy working with preschool aged children because there is no better reward than being able to be a part of the beginning of a child’s educational journey. 

In my free time, I’m either spending time with my family and friends or I’m cooking and baking. I also love going to the beach, hiking and listening to music.

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.
