Hello! My name is Emily Garcia. I am originally from Iowa. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading and English Language Arts in 1999. After completing my student teaching in Australia, I went on to teach overseas in La Guajira, Colombia where I taught 1st grade for two years. After teaching overseas, I moved to the Houston area where I taught fifth, fourth, and third grades. In 2005, I received my Master of Arts in Teaching - Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston - Downtown. I am particularly proud of my most recent accomplishment of becoming a National Board Certified teacher.
I am very excited to share my passion for teaching and my love of reading with your child this year. I want your child to feel at home in my classroom. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
