A little about me.

Your teacher, Mercedes Valladares was born in Havana, Cuba. We lived in New Jersey and Miami Beach before moving to Ocala. I began my teaching career in Broward County and have been a teacher for 20 years. I enjoy my job and love being your child's teacher and truly believe that teaching the next generation will have the biggest impact on society. We want our children to grow up and become caring, responsible, and respectful human beings. In order to achieve that, we must show compassion and understanding and model the behaviors we want them to learn. I look forward to working with your child and helping them achieve and conquer KINDERGARTEN!!!
