My name is Melanie Espinosa and I’m 23. I’ve lived in Orlando almost all my life, although I grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey. When I was little I always wanted to be a teacher. I used to make my cousins act like students and I’d pretend to be the teacher. I’ve always enjoyed working with children because they always seem to brighten up my day.
I’m graduating this semester from UCF and plan on pursuing a masters in School pyschology. My experience with PedAcademy has been excellent. The joy I get from meeting new patients and being able to help them is like no other. It’s very rewarding to be able to see a child’s face light up when you come in with new activities. They’re so funny and remind me everyday on why I decided to start a career with kids.
