El Camino Leader

Maria Valencia joined Seton in 2018. For over twelve years, Maria worked at a head start program in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She started working there as the Administrative Assistant fresh out of high school. This job inspired her career choice as she began college. In 2005, Maria earned an associate’s degree in early childhood education. Shortly after that, she was promoted to the position of Family Service Worker and fell in love with assisting families and students in need by helping them achieve their goals. Maria continued to pursue her education. She graduated from Lehman College in 2010 with a B.A. in speech pathology and a minor in psychology and early childhood education. During that course of study, she was offered another promotion to become the assistant director of the head start program. In 2103, Maria realized God was calling her to assume a different role; before joining Seton and El Camino, Maria spent five years at home at the service of her husband and their five children. During this time, she became very involved in the evangelization at her home parish and lent herself to catechize groups of  youth and adults. It was then that she was able to discern that God was calling her to serve him and his church through evangelization, and coming to Seton was her response to that call.
