Meet our Staff

Director : Laurie Martins

Ms. Laurie was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has been working in the Early Childhood Education field for about 23 years. Majoring in Human Development from UC Davis. She believes that children learn best when they’re at play, whether that be academically structured play or free play, that’s when their creativity and personalities come to life! I love a quote from Yo Yo Ma "Children, in a way, are constant learners. Certainly sponge-like. Absorbing everything without careful analysis, even though, at the same time, they are certainly capable of incredible insights."

She has lived in Florida, Michigan, Lake Tahoe, Southern CA, and Wisconsin. For 7 years she taught swim lessons to babies as well as to adults.

In her free time, Mrs. Laurie enjoys traveling, watching soccer, going on Nature walks and spending time with her family and friends.

Teacher : Yaya

Ms. Yaya was born and raised in Shanghai. Ms. Yaya graduated with a degree of Early Childhood Development from Shanghai Normal University. After coming to the U.S., Ms. Yaya continued to pursue her ECE study and successfully earned all the units needed from Theoria Technical College to take on the Assistant Director and Head Teacher role here at L'Academy. Ms. Yaya is very passionate about teaching and positive influence on every child. During her free time, Ms. Yaya likes spending time with her family and reading with her two children. She looks forward to meeting and working with our families to create bright futures for our children.

Teacher : Ann Zhu

Ms. Ann studied accounting at American River College. During that time, she discovered the early childhood education program and realized her love for working with children. So she started taking early childhood education classes. She has been studying courses at the university for almost four years.

Ms. Ann's favorite activity is teaching children by playing fun games and interacting with them. She thinks playing with kids helps them become more social. Ms. Ann is a strong believer in improving lives through education. She hopes to be able to transform young children into caring and capable adults.

In her free time, Ms. Ann enjoys talking with her son, as well as cooking and baking. She especially enjoys hanging out and watching movies with her family.

Ms Delphina recently graduated from UC Davis with a concentration in Social Services.  Ms. Delfina enjoys her experience of working and growing with kids. She loves working at L'Academy so she can gain knowledge and capability in working with all age groups.

Ms. Delfina has 16 units in Early Childhood Education. She hopes to further her education in Child Development or get a Master's degree in Social Work.

Teacher : Ms. Cindy

Ms. Cindy was born in China.  Before joining L'Academy preschool team, she enjoyed helping her son and daughter-in-law to raise their twin boys.  When her son's family moved out-of-state, she realized that she missed the joy of witnessing her grandkids' growing progress.  So she started units in Early Childhood Education and working with preschoolers at L'Academy.

Ms.Cindy loves working with children. She is especially excited to see their growth day by day. She likes to inspire them with puzzles and is constantly amazed by their learning ability. She is proud to be working in a language immersion preschool and being able to teach children her own native language: Mandarin.

Even in her spare time, Ms. Cindy likes to surf the internet looking for art and craft ideas to teach the children in her classroom.

Ms KK is currently taking 12 units at Theoria Technical College. She has a cheerful and gentle personality. Ms KK considers herself to be highly adaptable to new and challenging situations. Children are drawn to her right away because of her loving approach. Ms KK believes that learning is something that has propelled her life and wants to help every child to do the same.

In her spare time, Ms KK loves reading books to learn something new. In addition, she also enjoys bike riding and playing badminton with her son which are their favorite sports.
