Liz Cartagena - Assistant Teacher
I am excited to be a part of the TVN community and to get to help kids develop a lifelong love of learning."
Liz is the assistant teacher for the 5 day class, working with Denise Ikasalo. She holds a B.S. in psychology and a Master's degree in social work. As a social worker, one of her responsibilities was to engage in play therapy with children, both one-on-one and in groups. One of her favorite quotes is by Jean Piaget: "Play is the work of childhood." Liz lives in Delmar with her husband, two children, their dog Luna, and two guinea pigs Marshmallow and Jellybean. She enjoys volunteering and is an active member of several community groups. A former TVN parent and board member, Liz has a long history of service to, and involvement with, our early childhood education community.
