Mrs. Rodriguez

Hello, my name is Mrs. Rodriguez. I am the Full Day Teacher in the Preschool Program at Palermo. I have been in the Early Childhood field since 2002. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Development. I have worked for the Palermo Union Elementary School District since 2002. I enjoy teaching children and it fills my heart with joy to watch them learn and grow. I am committed to providing children and families a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning success. I believe that play is a child's most important work and I strive to create and maintain an environment where your child can learn and grow while exploring the world around them. Thank you for sharing your precious children with me!

I am the teacher for the AM Part Day Class at Palermo Preschool and the closing teacher for the full day class at Helen Wilcox Preschool. I have been in the Early Childhood Development field since 1995. I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education and I continue my education on an ongoing basis through workshops and trainings each year. I have worked for the Palermo District as an Instructional Aide and as a Substitute Teacher from 2003-2011. I have been a Site Supervisor/Teacher since 2012. I truly enjoy teaching children and watching them learn and grow! I love to provide opportunities and experiences that allow them to explore, learn, and build friendships through play in preschool. I look forward to my time with the children in our classroom. It is an honor for me to be a part of their continuing learning experience.
