Kelly Garcia

I was born in Santa Clara, CA, and grew up in Gilroy, CA. I went to UC Riverside for my undergraduate degree, where I majored in Spanish with a minor in Psychology. I earned my teaching credential from UC Irvine, and have been teaching since 1995. I have taught all grades from kinder to fifth grade. My favorite grades to teach are fourth and fifth.

My husband is also a teacher, and we have been married since 2000 and have one daughter who is in first grade. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, travelling, and spending time with friends and family. My favorite sports are basketball (GO LAKERS!!) and soccer. My favorite soccer teams are Manchester United and Chelsea.

Favorite subject/thing to teach

My favorite subjects to teach are math and art.

Most memorable experience at Del Rey Woods

My most memorable experience so far at Del Rey Woods was the fifth grade promotion ceremony last school year. I felt very proud of all my students for all the hard work they had done during the year, and for how much they had accomplished!

Favorite book?
