My name is Abby Cervantes and I am the Director as well as the Lead Teacher for our Pre-K Program at Summit Learning Academy, and proud to call SLA my home. I graduated from the Early Childhood Program at IVCC. I have been married for 10 years and have an 8-year-old named Nicole. She played a huge role when deciding what career I should follow. I believe that all children deserve to be taught in an environment that is welcoming, loving, fun, safe, and provides rich experiences that help them to grow in all areas of development. My goal is to guide children as they work to reach their full potential and grow into their own person. I love children and I can’t see myself doing anything else!
