Wendy Occhipinti, Director

Hello! My name is Wendy Occhipinti. I am the Director at Spanish Legacy Preschool and I am excited to be a part of such a great organization and the premiere Spanish immersion preschool in the Sarasota area. I have over 21 years of experience working in Early Childhood as both a director and teacher. I have recently moved to Florida from New Jersey. Also, I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a graduate level elementary teaching certification. I have both my Staff and Director’s credentials from the state of Florida.

My hobbies are reading, meditation and yoga. On the weekends, I can either be found on the beach shelling or touring around Disney. One of the first things I did when we moved to Florida was to become an Annual Passholder!

I welcome you to visit our beautiful school and I look forward to personally sharing with you the reasons why Spanish Legacy Preschool is a great place for your child.
