Alicia Cortina

Toddler Teacher

Alicia has been working at World Academy since 2014. She is currently working on her Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education at Nashua Community College.

Alicia grew up in Nashua, NH, where she currently resides with her Mom, Dad, two dogs, and two cats. She enjoys the beach, country music, trying new restaurants, shopping, and spending time with her friends and, most importantly, her family.

Alicia believes that children are unique individuals who require a strong physical, mental, and emotional role model. She feels that, as a teacher, it is her responsibility to provide a loving, caring, nurturing, age appropriate space for children to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally. Each child has something special to offer and it is her job to guide the children in a supportive, loving atmosphere, to believe in them and to teach them to believe in themselves.

Alicia joined the World Academy community in 2014
