Bio

Hey! This is Mrs. Garcia.  This is my eighteenth year teaching at Battlefield Elementary School and my 12th year teaching 5th grade. I received my Bachelor's degree in 1998 from the University of West Georgia, my Master's degree from Tusculum, and my Specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial. 

I've been married for 27 wonderful years and have been blessed with two beautiful children, Ashley and Jordan.  I've lived in Georgia, Washington, California, and Texas.  I am a Bulldog fan, but am loyal to my Texas Longhorns, Dallas Cowboys, and San Diego Chargers.

I LOVE teaching.  I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.  I have a few rules in my classroom which mostly consists of respecting one another.  When I give students respect, they always give respect back.  I'm here to teach and to learn.  I want to be a teacher that your child doesn't fear as he/she walks into the classroom.  I want them to feel that they can always come to me for help, advice, and can always ask questions.  I also want them to smile as they leave for the day and wake up in the morning excited to come to school. 

I'm looking forward to a wonderful year.  I have great expectations for your child and hold those expectations high.  I will never give them more than I think they can handle.  This year will be no different from the others. When we work, we work hard.  When we play, we play even harder.  I don't believe in lots of homework because I feel that family time is very important.  But in return, while we are at school, we will work hard.  It's going to be a great year!
