I am fluent in America Sign Language and am enthusiastic to teach signs to our students. Math and science are two of my favorite subjects to teach. I am a very energetic person and that will come through in my teaching style. I believe that preschool is such an influential time for a students life, it is their first experience in school. I can’t wait to ensure that my students have an amazing experience.

Sarah Morocco

Hello! My name is Sara Morocco and I am the Lead Teacher for Kid Ventures preschool. I have been a teacher for over four years. I have worked as a Before-and-After school teacher  for three years and then had the amazing opportunity to  work as a preschool teacher for a year and a half. It has been such a pleasure meeting all of the  young students and seeing them get excited to come to school. It  has been my passion to help my students succeed in their education, as well as helping them develop their social and interpersonal skills. I am looking forward to a year full of excitement and learning, as well as meeting all the Kid Ventures families and students!

Lex Young

Hello, My name is Lex Young. I am a Local Ocean Beach college student studying child development and psychology. I have always had a passion for childcare and teaching, I began caring for children at a very young age. All through high school, I developed programs for low income and special needs students to receive free tutoring, develop friendships, and meet with a mentor monthly. I  also became owner and coach of a local dance team which empowers teen girls and donates to other low-income dance companies in San Diego.

While at Kid Ventures I hope to guide each student towards success by creating an environment where their individuality is nourished. I pride myself on knowing the needs of  each child and knowing what methods best peak their interest in learning, I believe we need to treat every child as an individual with specific strengths and necessities. I am excited to begin learning about all this year’s students and look forward to the work we will accomplish together.

Julia Duke

Assistant Director

I grew up in a small town called Oxford, SW of Philadelphia, PA. The town had two traffic lights and to this day, still does! If you blink while driving through it, you’ll miss seeing the entire town. After graduating, I went to California on vacation and fell in love with it! I  decided to stay and pursue further education and a career in Early Childhood Education. I have been in the field for 24 years 7 of those years being in management. I’ve had the  honor of working with infants up to high school age. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am very excited to join the Kid Ventures team! I promise to keep your children safe, constantly providing them with the tools and opportunities to explore and learn, and to better prepare your children for  the world around   them.
