Hola, My name is Yoriela Lemons and I’m from Lima – Peru. My husband Joshua and I moved to California from Florida 6 years ago and we are loving it.
I lived in Peru until the age of twenty six (26) As far back as I can remember, I have always been with people that love working with children. My grandmother, mom and aunts are teachers, so I wanted to teach some day, which is why in 1993, I enrolled into a University in Peru to study early child education, where I stayed for four years and also started working with children in different pre-schools since then.
I also like language and travel. For these two reasons I became interested in learning languages (English and French)
I’ve been working at Centro Armonia since 2014. In 2015, I obtained my Associate of Science in Early Childhood Education.
My passion for the field comes from strong motivation to bring quality to a field, and to guide children to reach their maximum potential with freedom and kindness helping them to have a happy, and satisfying time in their life.
I began practicing yoga 10 years ago and I believe this is a good complement on my teaching. I obtain my Hatha Yoga teacher certification and completed 200-hours training at Breathe Los Gatos. Since then I’m continually inspired by yoga’s transformative power in kids and adults and I find it to be a source of love and strength.
I hope to further my personal and professional growth by obtaining a bachelor degree in the future and continuing have the honor to be inspired by these amazing little people.
Peace and Love,
