Teacher - After School

Introducing one of our newest members to Fortress, Fatima Magaña. A couple months ago on June 9th she was welcomed into motherhood, now has a daughter named Nayely Sarai. She also hopes to begin college soon! During her free time Fatima loves to spend time with family, she also loves to go shopping! Her favorite colors are rose gold and dusty rose.

Previously working at a head start she wanted to transition to something different and became one of the after school teachers. Fatima specifically works with kinder and first grade but never doubts on helping the rest of the children! Her duties are to bring her class from school to Fortress and follow our schedule, from snack to centers to homework and bible study. She is also one of our bilingual employees and does and awesome job translating to our Spanish speaking parents and guardians.

Thanks to her cousin Gabby, Fatima was told about Fortress. Fatima loves working at Fortress even more with being a non-profit organization. She admires the Fortress community helping children and their families with their needs. One of her favorite moments at Fortress so far was making bird feeders with the children which the really enjoyed. She hopes to create many more wonderful memories as the days go by.

If you ever need a friend or someone to talk to don’t hesitate to stop by her classroom! She is always here to help.
