    Mrs. Soto

    Toddler Teacher/ Mentor Teacher

    My name is Marilyn Soto. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I have been married for the past 20 years, and have three wonderful children. My hobbies are baking, playing basketball, billiards, reading, and riding bicycles. I have lived in Arizona since 2005. I am pleased to say that I have been working in early childhood development centers since 2004 and with Primrose since 2010. I am devoted, hardworking, and enjoy working with children. My children influenced my decision to work with young children. I feel that every child has something unique about them and it has helped me understand children individually. This encouraged me to pursue and further my education. I have completed the Child Development Associate Program at South Mountain College and am certified with my CDA Credentials. I take pleasure in watching the children learn and grow. I also take pride in the school, and programs that are specifically designed to educate young children. I am excited and honored to be a member of the Primrose School team.
