Sonia gutierrezMy name is Sonia Gutierrez. I have been working in the Lawndale School District for 25 years, and I have been in the child development field for about 20 years.

During my early years, I also worked with many other elementary grade levels as an assistant. I am a certified child development teacher with a site supervisor permit granted the state of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. I continue to learn and expand my knowledge of child development. I believe that learning is a very personal and unique experience for young children and adults as well.

I became a preschool teacher and decided to stay in this community because I fell in love with the preschool group age. Realizing the importance of learning at such a young age made me feel such responsibility in helping young children build their learning foundation for future school years. Children need to feel free to explore, discover, imagine, and create without being afraid of making mistakes to build on their confidence, and the best place is at the Lawndale Preschool Program. I look forward to meeting new faces as well as continuing to work with many familiar faces!

jessica soteloHi, my name is Jessica Sotelo. I have been working for the Lawndale School District since September 1998. I am a native Spanish Speaker. I was born in Lima – Peru, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Human Services and an Associate degree in Child Development. 

I continue to learn and expand my knowledge of Child Development by taking classes at El Camino College. I believe that learning is a personal and unique experience. Children learn through encounters with people who are significant in their lives. Children need to feel free to explore, discover, imagine, and create without being afraid of making mistakes.

As I begin to work with young children and their families in the early childhood field, I hold firm commitments and convictions from which my practices flow.
