Mayra Campos isfrom California, born in East LA and raised here in Hollywood. She is the Preschool Coordinator and Lead Teacher in the Busy Bear class.
A year after graduating from Hollywood High School, Mayra was introduced to the Schoolhouse community which she had always seen on Highland. She first came to the Schoolhouse working as an Afterschool Assistant. Whe she started, she had the opportunity to meet staff and explore the campus. In doing so, she was connected with the staff in the Preschool, where her love for teaching grew. After working one summer in the Preschool summer camp, Mayra felt welcomed by both the children and teachers. She had a fun time playing and teaching children about summer fun activities, like camping. After feeling so welcomed and inspired, she realized that she had found what she wanted to do. After attending UCLA and completing her child development courses, she was able to take lead in the Caterpillar class. After 8 wonderful years in that cocoon, she flew off with her butterflies (2015 graduating class).
A couple of years ago, Mayra went back to school to obtain her Directors Certificate in Child Development. Along with keeping herself motivated to learn, when she is not in school or at work, Mayra enjoys going to the movies and shopping! She also loves going on road trips and visiting national parks. She recently went to beautiful Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia. She even saw a mama bear and her cub during her recent trip to Yosemite.
