Leixa Torres
Head Teacher

I am Ms. Leixa Torres and I have been working in this field for 13 years now. I have experience working with all different age groups. I have a Bachelor and a Master Degree in Early Childhood Education. I love helping children play, grow and learn. It warms my heart when their faces glow with pride when they learn something new. I love all the hugs and smiles I receive from the children every single day. Helping children reach their full potential is so fulfilling to me. It is very rewarding to be part of the learning process and witness a child’s growth and development. To know that I played a part in getting them to where they are when they leave LULAC makes me love my job so much and is what pushes me to keep going. I look forward to continuing my journey here at LULAC with you all!

"My name is Yamilette Diaz, and I am proud to be part of Lulac Head Start for five years at Fay Miller Center. My current position is Teacher. I am from Caguas, Puerto Rico, and I attended Edic College to earn an associate degree in medical sonography. I also attended Instituto de Banca y Comercio to earn a certificate in Comprehensive banking. I'm enrolled in Charter Oak State College and have 24 credits in early childhood education toward my associate degree. In addition, I have a CDA, which certifies me to teach early childhood.

My love for working with our youngest students is unwavering! Therefore, I decided to work in early childhood education. I enjoy imparting knowledge and love to kids. I hope to sow seeds that will never wither in every student as a teacher. I am privileged to embrace the challenge of supporting each child's growth in all spheres, including social and emotional, language, physical, cognitive, mathematics, literacy, etc. Furthermore, to foster this growth in a joyful, positive environment, I work to build a community of learners.

I have three handsome boys of my own. I enjoy watching my children participate in sports, especially basketball and football. In addition, I like to spend time with my family, cook, listen to music, relax at the beach, camping, rollerblade, and ride a bike."
