Biography

My name is Nancy Ambriz, I am a preschool associate and this is my first year at Walnut Street School. I graduated from The National Pedagogical University in June, 2013 with a bachelor's degree in Educational Intervention. I've worked in Early Childhood Education from 2008-2014 in Mexico. Since the very moment I moved to the USA, I was looking for the opportunity to start teaching again. I firmly believe that teaching is my passion in life. I love teaching at Walnut Street School and I'm very glad to be part of it. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy reading books and doing outdoor activities as well. I look forward to a great year!
