Ana Pena Garcia

I am currently at Framingham State University in the child and family studies program. After graduating in 2025, I plan to eventually continue on with my education, and get a masters degree to become an early intervention specialist. Before First Circle, I was an infant/toddler teacher at The Learning Experience, which has prepared me well for caring for and loving the little ones! My favorite thing about working with young children is their curiosity—seeing how their little minds open and learn so much is so important to me. I hope to bring a warm and welcoming environment where children feel safe and heard. I am originally from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and now I live in Worcester when I’m not on campus. For fun, I like to go to the mall and the movies with my friends. I also really enjoy traveling and seeing new places.
