Welcome to first grade Spanish Immersion! My name is Margarita Garcia and I am very excited to join the John Muir Elementary community. I am looking forward to a fast-paced learning environment where we will work together to open the door to the world of Spanish literacy.
I received my BA from the University of San Diego in Diversified Liberal Arts with Bilingual Emphasis in Spanish. I also acquired my BCLAD teaching credential at USD and earned my Master's degree in teaching with a specialization in reading from National University. This is my fourteenth year teaching in San Diego Unified School District.
We have an incredible school year planned with excellent opportunities for John Muir students to explore themselves and the world through our core curriculum and Socratic Seminars. The Muir staff is eager to bring real world experiences into the classroom, helping students see the true applications of what they are accomplishing at school.
