My name is Clara, I am from Cali, Colombia. I came to the United States in 1980. I’ve lived in Arlington, VA for eleven years. After I moved to Springfield after I purchased a one bedroom condo. I got the opportunity to work for The Department of Energy where I had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Barbara Bush. It was an amazing experience to meet a very important person.
Then, I worked at Arlington Hospital Center at the day care center. I was responsible for the toddlers class. I worked there for 6 years until the center closed. Then, I got a job with Bright Horizons company at FDIC in Arlington. I worked there for almost 12 years. I left and became an assistant for Extended Day at Arlington. On 2016 I got the opportunity to work as an special aide assistant at Tuckahoe elementary school. I love it! I have learned how to help children with needs.
