Mrs. Garcia'S Site
Welcome to 6th and 9th Grade Art!
I was born in Cuero, Texas raised in a small town called Saspamco, Texas, just 15 mins from the Southside of San Antonio. I am a first generation graduate. I earned my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art, Minor in Art History from the University of the Incarnate Word.
I found my love for teaching art while working and volunteering for local art non-profits in the city of San Antonio. It was my mentor, who inspired me to serve my communities.
When I am not in the classroom. I am active with my family, painting, or caring for my two beautiful daughters Camila & Emma. I love music, going to concerts, traveling, visiting museums, classic movies, and cheering for my San Antonio Spurs. (left)
