I believe what is done in the earlier years of a child’s life will greatly affect the rest of it.
Ligia Morales-Cabal is happy to join the Parent-Infant Center as an assistant teacher in the Wild Things. She likes working with children because as she says, "their happiness, enthusiasm, laughs, smiles, and silly nature are contagious."
Her passion for working with young children came from the late Bev Bos and Dr. Amy Saia. Their advocacy of play-based preschool programs has truly inspired her.
As a teacher, Ligia hopes to excite children about the world. She wants to help them discover who they are, teach them importance of kindness, and help parents have confidence in their children’s abilities.
A recent graduate from the Community College of Philadelphia, Ligia is currently pursuing her bachelor's degree in early childhood education with additional certification in English as a second language.
Ligia currently lives in Northeast Philadelphia and is the first generation born in the United States within her family. Both her parents are from Colombia.
When not in PIC she loves to spend time with her 4-year-old daughter riding bikes, going to the movies or mall, or doing something involving nature. She love musics, arts and crafts projects, and taking pictures. She is also a strong advocate for multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance in the classroom and center.
