carmen     My name is Carmen.  When I was younger God gave me the opportunity to work with children of different ages in my church in the busy windy city of Chicago.

Working with children arose within me a strong love for children’s education. By me being comfortable in my line of work as a customer service manager I never pursued the children’s education field until I decided to do a career change. In a family discussion we agreed that if my passion was educating children, why not do it professionally.  That is why I decided to enroll myself at Frederick Community College where I received my certification with high honors. I prayed for God’s direction because I had several doors opened for employment; the doors were very promising and at the end I decided on Little Lights.

I am very excited to be part of this organization that have shown great passion and care for the children’s education. Presently I am attending Frederick Community College pursuing a higher degree in Early Childhood Development.

I  have been married for 23 years and have four children and two grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with the family and the outdoors.
