Hello Bens Branch family members!
I am Mrs. Garcia, your second-grade teacher! I am so very excited to be your new teacher and can't wait to start our school year together. Please know that this will be my 13th year of teaching and 16th in education. I have had the honor of teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade. All these experiences have been wonderful but let me tell you a secret...2nd grade is THE BEST!!! We will be learning a great deal in math and reading. As a lover of both these areas, I am incredibly privileged to be able to help you along your journey with them.
I know that this year might seem a little different and maybe even a little scary, but I assure you that here at Bens Branch we have only your best interest at heart. Our classroom will be a safe and loving environment so that our minds are free to absorb all the learning we can together.
