Meet Michelle Quintero, a Bilingual Behavior Specialist at CLD!
Michelle is one of CLD’s newest staff, joining the team in July 2021, prior to which she was a classroom teacher. As a Bilingual Behavior Specialist, she works with Spanish speaking families to best support them and their child's needs. Michelle is grateful to serve at work with similar communities that she grew up in, and that have helped get her to where she is today. Born and raised in Riverside, California, Michelle has lived on the West Coast her whole life – but is excited to explore the other side of the country. She loves to be near the beach and spending quality time with friends and family. Michelle recently earned her Master’s in Early Childhood Education, and is proud to be the first in her family with a Master’s degree! The three words she’d use to describe herself are: Energetic; Passionate; and Adventurous.
Thank you, Michelle, for all you at CLD!
