We would like to introduce our newest team member, Ms. Leslie Estrada! She has been working with us this summer as a teaching assistant and will take on a Lead Teacher role this Fall. Leslie has completed significant coursework in child development and is a very bright and kindhearted individual. Her love for children has led her to aspire to be a pediatrician. Let’s get to know her in her own words:
I am originally from the State of Mexico, Mexico and I have been living in Nebraska for 10 years in a small town called Newman Grove. My family consists of my parents and my two younger sisters. When I am home, I speak mostly in Spanish. This allows me to use my Spanish since I communicate in English most of the time.
I am a pre-Med student at the University of Nebraska and will be graduating this December, 2019 with a double major in Biology and Sociology. I enjoy working with children and in the future, I would like to do so by going into a health career focusing on pediatrics. I have been working for 1.5 years as a research assistant at the Nebraska Center of Virology at UNL.
In my free time I enjoy doing puzzles with my father and younger sister. I also enjoy going on walks around Lincoln and going to the movies with my sister.
