Our teachers and staff are passionate about teaching young children. All our teachers are well educated in early childhood education and we have over 30 years of combined teaching experience to share with your children. Our staff is dedicated and focused on creating meaningful lesson plans and creating exciting and inviting learning environments.
My name is Kayla Linden and I joined the team at OUMPS in September 2018. I went to Fullerton junior college and received my associates in graphic design and advertising, then realized that my heart was with teaching young children. I then switched my major to early childhood development and I am now back at Fullerton junior college taking some classes and will soon transfer to Cal State Fullerton College for my bachelors. The greatest joy about this field, is knowing that you can/are impacting these children's lives by helping them learn and grow. My goal is to help make the world a better place, one little life at a time.
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, painting, swimming, skating, hanging out with family/friends. My best friend is Buddy my pup.

My name is Mrs.Silvana. I am originally from Chile and now reside in Pomona California with my husband of 44 years. I have two grown children and 3 grandchildren with another on the way! I have always been passionate about enriching the lives of young students. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Child development and have dedicated the last 17 years to educating preschool aged children. In my spare time I enjoy crafting and gardening.
I was born and raised in Fullerton, Ca. I received my BS Degree in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton. In College, I subbed as an aide in Special Education.
In my spare time I love to read, especially a good mystery.
My family consists of my mom and sister. I also have two cats. I have been teaching at OUMPS since 1984. I love teaching the 2 & 3 year olds. I love watching the children grow and have seen them come back to OUMPS with children of their own.
I am excited to be a part of the OUMPS Staff.
A little bit about me…I have been married for 44 years to my childhood sweetheart. I have 2 sons and 1 daughter. I have 9 grandchildren and a great grand child on the way! I thank God every day for my family. I have been working for 15 years with preschoolers. 11 of those years have been here at OUMPS. My favorite bible verse is Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
My name is Ms. Priscilla and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child. I know we will have a fun, educational and overall fantastic school year here in OUMPS!
This will be my 12th year teaching in a preschool setting, I have a Liberal Arts and Science Degree with a minor in Early Child Development. My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in their own different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively and learning though play.
When I’m not teaching, I’m with my husband and two kids, Dominic and Mila. We enjoy spending lot of time at the beach where I’m learning how to surf (horribly ha ha) Some of my favorite things are baking, photography, winter, reading comic books and of course, TARGET! Looking forward to getting to know you
