Hello, I am Reena Popiel de Cazaux. After receiving an Associates Degree in Fine Arts, I began to study Early Childhood Education at Cerritos College. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Development with a double specialization from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena. I hold a Master Teacher Permit from the State of California. I have ten years of experience working in the field of Early Childhood Education. My on going education consists of workshops that center on Child Development and the inspired Reggio Emilia approach. In 2008, I participated in a study group in Reggio Emilia, Italy. I enjoy coming to work and researching along side the children in my care, but my true passion is watching my 8 year old son grow and discover the world around him.
