Karina Samoaya opens Discovery Preschool at World Upside Down Arts Studio

Karina Samayoa


Karina is a mother of 4 wonderful kids. She has been married to the love of her life, Julio, for 19 years. Joanna Puello and Karina have been friends for many years and are super excited to bring this new Preschool to the World Upside Down offerings. Karina studied Elementary Education at Bob Jones University. She spent six summers running a day camp in the Dominican Republic. Children ages 2-12 came every week ready to experience fun educational activities. Karina had the privilege of homeschooling her 2 oldest children for several years. She gave them a love for learning, showed them how to become independent learners, and gave them a God perspective on everything. Karina loves Jesus and is not shy to share His love with adults and children. She is very excited about God’s timing with Discovery Preschool and can’t wait to pour God’s love into your children and educate them in a fun and hands-on way.
