Hello Bengals! Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Mrs. Garcia and I am very excited to begin a new school year with you. First grade is so much fun, and an amazing journey of exploration, collaboration, and growth. I cannot wait to get to know you and your child as we embark on this learning adventure together!
I feel extremely fortunate to have the absolute best job in the world! This will be my 8th year teaching first grade in Irvine Unified School District. I am proud to teach in an environment with such high standards and strong commitment to student achievement. My goal is to empower all of my students to become lifelong learners who take risks, solve problems, and think independently.
My husband and I are blessed to have three young boys, Milo (5), Westley (3), and Theodore (almost 1)! They are so much fun and keep us very entertained! We love to spend time together as a family, exploring different places and trying new things.
I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to work with you and your child! It is going to be an amazing school year. Go Bengals!!
