     Hello my name is Belinda and I am the threes teacher! I have been working in preschools right out of high school, going on five years of teaching!

I joined the Infusion team in November of 2020 and have been welcomed with open arms and love! I am so blessed to be here!

I have a daughter who attends Infusion as well and  I enjoy watching, not only my daughter but all the children that come into my class, grow and learn each and every day!
