    Ms. Claudia
    Site Director's Bio

    I am the Director, Claudia Vanessa Albornoz-Patzan. I have credentials of 40 plus Early Childhood Education units from San Jose City College. I received a Certificate of Level 2 ECEI had received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education 2019. All at the same time I work, am a wife, and a mother of our well-known Ezequiel from the pre-k’s.

    I ultimately want to receive my BA then MS in this field. I have been a teacher for 14 years with age groups of 6 weeks old all the way to 6 years of age (as I worked for 2 years at Tulip’s Afterschool), and in every teacher position. All this experience has given me expanded insight in how best I can fulfill and understand an infants, junior preschooler, and pre-k’s wants and needs.

    It has also given me great knowledge in how to work with a variety of diverse people and how to best understand my teacher’s in their perspectives, as I was one for many years. I had been a Director for two schools before, one being my mother’s (Maria Fushiki) My Dream Academy (placed as one of the top 5 in Silicon Valley in 2012). I also worked for Children’s House Academy Appleseed. I have leveled up through my career and am Blessed to have all these opportunities that I one worked hard for and others came by fate, like when I met the Owner of Tulip, Ms.Deepti. Here at Tulip, my hope is to ensure that myself and my staff will provide quality and equal care and support for every child. Were excited to have you on board!

    For enjoyment: I also love fitness coaching, and am on the pursuit to fulfill my Personal Training certificate.

    Mai Nguyen

    My name is Mai Nguyen. I was born in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I have done my Early Childhood Education AS Degree, Associate Teacher (certificate). This is my dream job when I was in high school. But I didn’t have a change to become a teacher in my country. I had over 10 years’ experience as an Assistant Manager office. When I moved to the United States, I thought that I have to go back to the school and get an associate teacher degree. Although, this time was so hard while I went full time in the school, and I was a single mom. But I never stop because I know that when I go back to the college. It will help me to get a good job. My goal is to teach and care for children in a day-care setting. My three years of professional babysitting along with my education have prepared me well for the role. I am extremely patient and have a terrific personality. Children respond very well to me and I enjoy caring for them and designing educational playtime activities. I understand children can be messy and know that that is part of their learning process. I would love to come on board with new place, and I am very excited about the job.
