Hello! My name is Maria. I just started working for Jumpstart in March of 2019 as a bilingual home visitor, but I also have previous home visiting experience. Additionally, I have worked as an educator in our community for many years, teaching adults and children. What I enjoy most about home visiting is observing the progression of parent-child interactions as well as the child's developmental growth. It is an honor to support parents in their endeavors and it is also very rewarding to see them succeed. I enjoy Dr. Seuss books, but also The Story of Ferdinand the Bull and The Velveteen Rabbit.
