Hello, my name Is Alicia Pena. I have been working in childcare for over 10 years. I moved to Denton in the fall of 2012 to attend The University of North Texas. I joined DCCDS in 2013 as a work study student where I assisted in the classrooms. In 2014, I left for a year to work on student teaching. In 2015, I graduated UNT with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. In the fall of 2015, I decided to Join the DCCDS team once again. I have since been working as a lead teacher in the Pre-K classroom. My passion for teaching has always run deep and I look forward to growing in my knowledge of children and teaching!
