I have been working in the childcare field for 21 years and have been a director with Rainbow Rising for 18 years. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton,an Associates of Arts degree from Fullerton College and my Site Supervisory Permit through the state of California. I have made childcare my passion and priority. I believe that working with children is the most rewarding job a person can have. I am dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment in which children can learn and grow.
Hello College Park Families, I am Samantha Tovar and I am elated to be your new Assistant Director. In 2011, I began working for Rainbow Rising! I am a fellow Rainbow Rising alumni, who started off my early adolescent years at Rainbow Rising Westpark way back in 1993! I have been working with the Rainbow Rising family for almost 6 years now and have loved every single moment. Throughout my journey with Rainbow, I was given the opportunity to grow numerous times, going from Teacher to Master Teacher to now your Assistant Director. I have been fortunate enough to work at multiple Rainbow Rising locations over the years and I have gained a wealth of experience. I was able to make amazing memories to last me a lifetime. I have 10 years of experience working with children. I am currently in school to pursue a degree and gain more knowledge in Child Development and Counseling. I look forward to meeting you and your families, as well as creating new and fantastic memories here at Rainbow Rising College Park!
