Meet Our Team

Maria Ycaza


Welcome to Key Point Academy Coral Gables!

My name is Maria del Rocio Ycaza and I am the director of Key Point Academy Coral Gables. I was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador and immigrated to Miami, Florida in 2020. I am a wife and proud mother of three children; Richard 27, Natalie 24 and Valerie 21. During my free time, I love to play sports, go to the beach, read and spend time with friends and family.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a Master’s in Pedagogy. During my first years as a professional, I worked in the administrative field for various companies. In 2006, I was invited to join a team of educators in the development and launching of a school project that began with 150 students and grew to 1500 in a 10-year span. I remained working there until my relocation to Miami in 2020 when I had the joy of joining the Key Point Academy family.

As an educator, I am a strong believer in the opportunity we have to help children flourish and our role to accompany parents in facilitating confidence, respect and care. I believe in every child as an individual with a unique mission to make this world a better place!

Isabella Farias


My name is Isabella Farias and I have the honor of being the Assistant Director at Key Point Academy Coral Gables.

I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. I’m married to Juan Andres and we have a son, Juan Simon and another one on the way, Teodoro.

My passion for nurturing young minds and creating a positive learning environment led me to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and I have been working in the field since 2012. My journey with Key Point Academy began a few years ago when I moved to Miami. I was fortunate to join this incredible team as a Lead Teacher for different age groups.

Since then, I have continued learning, understanding, and delving into diverse educational approaches and ways of thinking.

As Assistant Director, my mission is to share the knowledge and experiences I’ve acquired with my fellow educators and to cultivate a warm and welcoming atmosphere where every family feels at home and every child thrives on their educational journey. I am dedicated to supporting the families we serve and creating an inclusive community that prioritizes the well-being and development of each child.
