Joan Acevedo
Joan Acevedo
Head Teacher

My name is Joan M. Acevedo. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I have been a preschool teacher since 2003, I have a Bachelor's degree in Early childhood and Primary Education. I have been blessed to be able to walk hand in hand with children and provide them with opportunities that allow them to learn and grow. When I am out of work, I enjoy quality time with my daughter and family.

Waleska Arroyo
Teacher Assistant

I am Miss Waleska. I work in Room 6. I have been working in Education since my 24 year old was 3, and attending the Early Childhood Learning Center. I became an employee of the Board of Education when I was 19 years old. I fell head over heels with ECE during that time. Visiting the Children’s Museum only strengthened that love and I became an employee soon after. My journey continued with my second son and led me to a job as Cosmetology Teacher. After my 3rd son, I realized my real passion was working with children and came to LULAC in 2015. I recently had my 4th boy and continue to be amazed at the joy of childhood and all it entails.
