Angela Ly is excited for the opportunity to join the Aprende family this school year. This is her first year with Aprende, but she has been working with preschool age children for over eight years, starting off in her church’s children ministry as a volunteer and moving into the school environment. Mrs. Ly enjoys every aspect of teaching and has come to realize throughout the years that children often teach their teachers as much as they teach them. Outside of the classroom, she loves spending time with her husband, two daughters, and her dog. Some of her hobbies include hiking, cooking, and traveling. Angela is eager to be in the classroom to be a part of each child's growth and first school experiences.
