Welcome to biology! It's going to be a great year. My name is Mrs. Garcia and this is my 13th year teaching and my 5th year at Great Oak H.S. I went to Whittier College and grew up in Southern California. I am married to Mr. Garcia (also a teacher and coach at GOHS) and we have been married 22 years. We have six children ages 18, 16, 14, 12, 9, and 8. Our family loves the Lakers, Raiders, being a part of Young Life, growing at our church, and just being together. I love teenagers and feel blessed to be your teacher. I hope to make it a fun and meaningful year. I love biology and hope to make it challenging for you but also a great experience and one that will make you successful and learn something too. Please let me know if I can do anything for you to help.
