 Thelma Avilez | Director

     I have been a member of Infusion Church for close to 9 years. I assisted in the start-up of this school 8 years ago! I have been in the early childhood education field for 32 years and I have been in a management position for 15 of those years. I grew up in Santee and received my Bachelors Degree in Child Development from San Diego State University. I have 2 children and a granddaughter. My children and my granddaughter are my greatest blessings. I am so excited to be a part of your child's school! I bring with me fresh ideas, organization and a consistent environment. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!

Our Other Staff Members




 Sierra Pocza | Two Year Olds Teacher
     I have been at Infusion Christian Preschool since 2014. I started as an aide and continued to work with the two year olds while attending Ashworth College to obtain my Early Childhood Education credits. Afterwards, I was promoted to Teacher in the Seedlings class. I love doing art and science experiments with the children as well as creating fun and exciting sensory expereiences for them. I absolutely love my job! It's so rewarding to be able to mold minds, and to watch them grow, discover and create. 

In my personal life, I love the rodeo, country concerts and taking road trips on the Harley. Some of my hobbies are playing tennis with my dad, canvas painting and reading. 


 Belinda Blanco | Three Year Olds Teacher
     Hello my name is Belinda and I am the threes teacher! I have been working in preschools right out of high school, going on four years of teaching! I started out at KinderCare as an aide and I attened Grossmont Community college to get my units to become a lead teacher! I recently joined the Infusion team in November of 2020 and have been welcomed with open arms and love! I am so blessed to be here! Growing up I knew two things were certain; one I wanted to be a mom one day and two I wanted to work with children. Fast forward to the present and here I am having been blessed with both! 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! 

In my free time I enjoy working on my photography, reading and going out on fun dates with my daughter!

     I have been working in preschools since 1956 when my eldest child was 3 years old. I raised 8 children; 5 boys and 3 girls. I was also the director of Christianed Reformed Church Preschool, now Infusion Christian Preschool, and I love being back at my old campus. In my time, I love to sing both in my church choir and in a barbershop chorus and quartet.
