“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.” – Mortimer Adler
Ms. Batista spent a large part of my life working for a non-profit organization providing a variety of services for the community, mainly with children and their families. She believes in making a difference by being genuinely and actively involved in the community. She obtained a BA in Psychology and a Masters of Science in Early Childhood Education form Lehman College of New York; and is currently enrolled in a second Masters program in Educational Leadership. Ms. Batista has been working as a Prekindergarten teacher in the Bronx for three years after joining the NYC Prek Scholars program in June 2015. She is a mom of two amazing boys, Matthew and Michael, who are her world. They enjoy spending quality time and traveling together, especially to the Caribbean because she enjoys going back to my roots. Ms. Batista is excited to form part of Brilla Veritas founding family and meet everyone!
