Hey!! My name is Bianca Araujo. I moved back to the area from western Prince William and Loudoun Counties, where I was teaching and am so happy to be back! I am thrilled to join the team here at STEM Preschool. I have been teaching for 12 years, most of my experience being with Toddlers, Two and Three
year olds.

 

I have always enjoyed helping others learn and grow. I knew I wanted to be a teacher, even when I was young. I love being able to help and watch children begin to develop into their own little person as they discover something new everyday. I have attended Northern Virginia Community College and am
currently enrolled in CareCourses to complete my Childhood Development Associates.


When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling to the beach and road trips to the mountains for some hiking
and fishing. I enjoy painting, crafting and cooking or just hanging out at home with my 3 cats. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.

I worked in Law Enforcement for over 10 years. I opened my home daycare April 2014 for three years. I worked with infants up to school age. I relocated to Alexandria August 2017 when my son qualified for the USA Boxing Elite team. I enjoy working with children helping them develop.

¡Hola! I feel very excited to be part of the STEM Preschool. I’m Puerto Rican, and the education field started to interest me since 2009. In 2009, I studied Physical Education, and soon after I discovered my passion and the contributions that I could bring to children. Later after I finished my undergrad degree in Natural Science’s. I continued my studies in Special Education and attained my Master’s Degree. Since then I started to work assisting students with special needs. From that experience, I realized that my passion of teaching and learning  was what I enjoyed in life.

Hello Everyone!
My name is Alison Fath and I am SUPER excited to be apart of the STEM Preschool family this year! I have always had a niche for education and even started making grounds towards my lifelong pathway as an educator as early as high school when I served as a First Grade mentor in one of my chosen electives. Since then I have worked as an early childhood nanny, lead instructor for multiple summer camps, soccer coach, and vast experience in multiple daycare facilities.


I am originally from Berryville, Virginia. I completed my Associates Degree at Lord Fairfax Community College in Middletown Virginia and am nearing the end of my Bachelor’s Degree requirements in Early Childhood Education through Old Dominion University. When I am not hanging out with my 2 and 3 year old friends at STEM, I love to find activities outside to do! My favorites are hiking, kayaking, and watching Nationals baseball! I also have a huge passion for traveling the world and exploring places that I’ve never been!

It’s wonderful to make a career out of a passion of mine. I’ve been working with children since I was in high school and that’s where I discovered my talent. I started my childcare career in 2013 when I started working for a non-profit dedicated to providing families with resources, including tutoring, mentoring, and education. They focused primarily on preschool and elementary school families. I enjoyed working as a Group Leader and helping my children develop socially, cognitively and emotionally.

 

I received my associate’s degree in psychology at Northern Virginia Community College. Being from Virginia, I am proud to say I spent my time attending school in Virginia and teaching in the public school system, as well as volunteering at recreation centers. I plan to continue my studies and become a social worker in the near future. Most of my time is spent with my family and friends. Some of my favorite activities are painting and shopping, but most of all I like to spread my love with others. I am thrilled to now be a lead teacher with the STEM Preschool team!
