Mrs. Garcia

My Name is Maria-Teresa Garcia I am teacher at the district International Academy. I hold a degree in Latin American studies with a focus in Mexican History. I also have a Multiple Subject Credential. I have been working with English Language Learners for the past 12 years. It is my belief that any student can reach their academic goals if they are provided with strong support from their teachers, family and administration.
