LEAD ART TEACHER
My name is Ms. Lina. I was born in Colombia and moved to the U.S. in 1999. After living in Tampa Florida since my move, I relocated to Frisco in 2012 with my husband and daughter who is now in college here in the area.
I hold a B.A. in Art with a concentration in Interior Design, a Bilingual CDA Certification, accreditation by the NAFCC and I also hold a certification in Digital Photography from the University of South Florida. I am currently licensed as a Childcare Center Director in both Texas and Florida.
I have worked in Early Childhood Education as well as in Art since 1998. During this time I have taught preschool, pre-k and kindergarten. I have also been a Center Director and an Assistant Director along with owning my own Daycare Facility in Tampa. All of these have allowed me to touch the lives of many children.
When I am not traveling to watch my Daughter play softball, I can usually be found enjoying time with my family or doing photography which is a passion of mine. While I miss Florida, especially the beaches, I love Frisco, the Dallas area and all of the exciting things it has to offer.
I am very excited to be a part of the Music Arts Schoolhouse where I can connect my two true loves, Art and teaching children, and pass along my knowledge and skills. Children are our future and they need the opportunity to explore new things and experience all that life has to offer. I am happy that in some small way I can help give them that opportunity.
