My name is Adriana DiCarlo and I feel honored to have been selected as the new Preschool Director of Kensington Community Preschool. For the last 30 years I have worked as a Preschool through Kindergarten Teacher and as a Preschool Director, both in Montessori as well as traditional programs. I have also taught Spanish to Kindergarten through 8th grade students and I’m a Certified Spanish Interpreter. I consider myself lucky to have chosen a career in education, and even after all these years, children continue to amaze me. I am excited to have the opportunity to be part of your child’s growth and education and I look forward to a bright future with KPS and the entire community.
My name is Rocio Martinez. I’m originally from Los Angeles but relocated to San Diego a few years ago. I have a bachelor’s degree in Child Development and over 13 years of classroom experience. I love my career and enjoy teaching children. I’m married and mom of two small boys, one of whom attends Kensington preschool. My family and I enjoy walking, visiting the zoo, the park, and the beach. I like sunsets, dancing, and baking.
I started my career in the field of Early Childhood in 1993 here at Kensington Community Preschool. I am a very passionate individual who is dedicated to helping each of our children succeed. I was born in San Diego and raised in England. I live in Kensington, just a couple blocks from the school, with my husband Harmon. I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, hiking and bird watching. My passion is working with young children and providing them with a fun, safe and nurturing learning environment.
I have been working in the field of Child Development since 1996. I live with my husband Marcos and our two sons, Marcos and Angel. We enjoy walking on the beach and spending family time together. Most of all, my husband and I truly enjoy watching our children grow and develop. This field has provided me with a special opportunity to work and be with my children while they were in their early childhood stage. It was also the motivation that developed my love for the field. It fills me with joy knowing they had a safe and fun learning environment, while developing those important early skills. I teach in our 2s class. I love this age and love watching each one grow and get ready for their next step here at KPS.
