Hi there! I am Miss M. Garcia. I have been teaching at Perales Elementary for nine years now. Including this year, I have taught 5th grade for seven years, one year in 1st grade, and one year in 3rd grade. I was born in Manila, Philippines but grew up here in San Antonio, TX. I also love traveling and been to places such as Baton Rouge, LA; Mobile, AL; Tallahassee, FL; Orlando, FL; Los Angeles, CA; Cincinnati, OH; and many others. I don't have any children of my own, but I do have one dog whom I love dearly, her name is Kalea and she is a Labrador/Pitbull mix. Other things (hobbies) I do outside of work are spending time with family, cooking, spending time with my dog, reading, and working-out.
