Hello, my name is Joann Otero, a teacher for the "Funny Bunnies." I've loved being around children since I was a little girl and was even the neighborhood babysitter. I am a wife, mom, and grandmother of 4, with the oldest serving in the military, similar to his dad. I love our military, and I am proud to have those in my family who serve and have served. I've worked with children on the Autism Spectrum, vacation Bible school, in Swalizland, South Africa, as a missionary reading and feeding children in the villages, and in a private church staff childcare. Before moving to Virginia from Fayetteville, North Carolina, I was approved to be a foster parent: I wanted to be a part of helping to make a child's life better. I get joy seeing the look in a child's eyes when they "get it" after learning something new that they worked so hard to understand: this is my heart's desire.
