 Hello! I am Mrs. Eddy Wobbe. Born and raised in Rio Rancho, I am 27 years old and a wife and a mother. I attended Early Learning Preschool when I was a toddler. Because my experience at ELP was great, I intend to make our students' experience just as fun and educational. My favorite hobbies include singing, dancing, hula hooping, daring to be creative through art and science, and learning more about the world.
