Hello! I am Ms. Edy. Born and raised in Rio Rancho, I am 27 years old and a wife and 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, but are not limited to, singing, dancing, hula hooping, daring to be creative through art and science, and learning about the world.
