Amor Figueroa

Support Teacher

Ms. Amor was born in Washington, DC, but her parents are both from Mexico! She is the second of 5 siblings and has two children of her own, Kevin and Asa. Amor graduated from Northwood High School in 2012, where she began working with children and discovered her passion for education. She loves watching children learn and grow each day! Outside of school, Amor enjoys spending time with her children, going on long drives, or to a beach to play in the sand. Amor’s favorite children’s book is Are You My Mother by Dr. Seuss because she knows every single word and loves reading it to her students and her own children at home! She enjoys using several different voices throughout the story for each character.

Amor has been at Whole Kids since 2019, where she began as a substitute teacher before joining our team full time in 2020. She shares that her favorite part about being at WKA is the fun environment – there is always something new and fun going on. She also loves helping our little ones learn a second language, which is so valuable!
