Collins State Preschool

Hello, my name is Olivia Arias. I have an Associate Degree from Cerritos College in
Early Childhood Education and Liberal Arts. In May 2018, I was able to accomplish my
goal of obtaining my bachelor’s Degree from Dominguez Hills in Child Development with a
concentration in Early Learning Teaching. I have been working with children for the last 13
years and been working in Paramount Unified School District for 5 years. My family is one of
the most precious things in my life. I’m married and have 4 children all girls that keep me and
my husband occupied with school and extracurricular activities. As a family, we spend time at
the beach, parks and shopping. My favorite color is blue, gray, turquoise, I love shopping at
Walmart, Dollar Tree, and 99 Cents Only Stores. I will be looking forward to working with your
children this year.
