Gletsy's story

My name is Gletsy Oliveros, mother of 2 children and married to Harry Salas. We are a family from Spain and we arrived in this wonderful country 5 years ago. My profession is as a Construction Engineer and my passion is mathematics. When we arrived in Madison, Wisconsin, I saw a great career opportunity as an early childhood teacher and it was in that area of work where I started working at Lighthouse Christian School along with my husband who was the music and technology teacher at the same school. We started studying for the Nursery Administrator Certification Credential; we finished it and we are currently studying for the Preschool Certification Credential. We are currently finishing the last required course (for the certification). A little more than a year ago, we thought we were ready to start our own business and we made it. We have our own state licensed Family Daycare. I am the lead teacher and my husband is the administrator, making this business a success. Given the acceptance of parents and the demand for this type of business, we began the project of expanding to a Group Child Care Center, providing good service to the community and creating sources of employment for early childhood education professionals.
