Hello! My name is Cindy Ung, and I am very excited to be a part of the new CHALK Preschool in Newport Beach! I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley and lived there until I moved to Fullerton to attend Cal State Fullerton. It was there that I received my B.S. in Child and Adolescent Development. During my time at Cal State, I was fortunate enough to get a job at the Children’s Center, where I worked until I graduated.
