Hello, my name is Leslie Carneiro I was born in Atlanta. Both my parents came here from Sao Paulo, Brazil to look for a better life for themselves and their future children. We lived in various parts of the east cost until we moved to Orlando just after my sophomore year in High School where I graduated High School. After graduation I got a job at Walt Disney World as a Brazilian Portuguese translator, then various other jobs for the next few years before deciding to go to college and get a professional degree. While in college I got a part-time job working at my aunts’ church nursery taking care of the small children. This is where I discovered my love for working with small children.
This is when I decided to try and see where my passion really lay and got a job at my first preschool. Over the past few years I was able to complete my courses, get my A.S Degree in Business Management with a minor in Early Childhood Education and get my Childcare Development Associates Certificate (CDA). I love coming in to work everyday and seeing how the children’s minds grow and discover new things. I hope to continue working with children and help them continue to grow and become great students. Eventually I would hope to become a Director then open up my own school.
