Mrs. Garcia


Welcome to 5th grade in Room 5

Hello room 5 parents and students, 

My name is Mrs. Garcia. I started teaching 5th grade here at Longfellow in 2013. I have been teaching in Long Beach Unified since 2001 and have taught grades 3, 4, and 5. 

I was born in Denver, Colorado and moved to California when I was in the 4th grade. I attended Long Beach schools starting at Cleveland Elementary, then to Bancroft Middle School, and on to Lakewood High School. Since kindergarten, I have known that I wanted to be a teacher. I went to Cal State Fullerton and majored in Child and Adolescent Studies, and I went to Chapman University for my teaching credential and received my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. 

When I am not teaching, I most enjoy spending time with my awesome husband and two great boys! 

To my incoming students, I am eager to meet you and look forward to getting to know you. Parents, please stop by to say hello so that we can start working together to help our scholars meet their full potential. 

Here's to a great year working together, 

Mrs. Garcia
