Isabel Heredia


Hello, my name is Isabel Heredia.

I am so happy and proud to be part of Building Kidz, an organization that provides young children with the tools they need for a solid foundation. I am passionate about working with children and watching them grow in a fun environment that will prepare them for the world ahead.

Coming from a family of teachers, my passion for working with children came early on in life. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Norte Dame de Namur University and hold a certificate in Montessori Early Childhood Education. I have worked in school settings since 2007, teaching and supporting infants, toddlers and preschoolers. I have also had the pleasure of teaching children and supervising teachers in play based, academic, and Montessori settings.

My husband and I have a 6 year old son and another on the way! We are determined more than ever to provide excellence in care and education for children in their most formative years.

I look forward to building a partnership with the families of Building Kidz and providing the most enjoyable experience that will develop each child’s confidence, commitment and character.

Rebecca Garcia


Hello, my name is Rebecca Garcia. I was born in Portland, Oregon but raised in the Philippines. After University in 2017, I moved back to the US to pursue my dream in Early Childhood Education! I love to write, to read and to listen to music. I love traveling, being outdoors and spending time with my family and friends but most especially I love working with children! 

I graduated with a BA in Psychology and have been teaching since 2018 and managing and supporting our teaching team since 2020 . I have worked with both infants and toddlers in a play-based setting, and I have been a lead teacher of all the age groups here in Building Kidz! 

My passion for working in a school setting is driven by my goal to help children reach their full potential as well as lead and support a team of educators in providing the best environment for our little ones. I believe that children can and will thrive if given the right tools and are guided and surrounded by a loving community.

I am very honored to be part of Building Kidz and to be your partners in your child’s development!

Hola! Hello! My Name is Mrs. Janet Martinez and I am very excited to be a part of the Building Kidz family! I am very thrilled to come on board and help out! I know it is going to be a year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us all. I look forward to getting to know our new families and continuing our adventure with our current families

I was born in Texas but raised in San Francisco. I am a mother of two beautiful, wonderful children. I have always loved to teach, and I found this passion through taking care of my family and my younger siblings. I am Mexican American, and I am immensely proud of my roots and I embrace my culture in which I incorporate this in how I teach. I have been a preschool teacher for over 3 years now.  I have been an assistant teacher and Spanish teacher in two other preschools, La Lengua and Creative Montessoi. In my free time I like to go on walks, watch soccer games, watch the Warriors, the 49ers and the Giants play. I love to do projects, watch movies, travel, try new food and be with my family and friends.

I am overly excited to be a teacher here at Building Kidz and be a part of this amazing school that I look forward to helping your child reach his or her full potential!
