Fifth Grade Teachers

Valeria Garcia - Spanish Teacher

Valeria was born in Hayward CA but has lived in Mexico, Salinas Valley, and Central Valley. Four years ago she relocated to Sonoma County. She attended Sonoma State where she earned her Bachelor's in Liberal Studies and her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.
Maestra Garcia worked for California Mini-Corps Migrant Program for 3 years, tutoring low-income migrant students. Working with first-generation, low-income, and historically disadvantaged migrant students motivated her to pursue a career in teaching.
Valeria is married and has two dogs, Frida and Fiffy. She enjoys traveling, trying new foods, reading, spending time with family and her two dogs. Maestra Garcia is teaching 5th grade Spanish and is thrilled to be part of an amazing team!
