Mrs. Garcia


Welcome to Learning Lab 7 and welcome to Innovation Academy!  I am extremely proud to be a member of the IA family and look forward to meeting each and every one of you!  This school year will be filled with many new and exciting experiences and I am happy to be on this journey with you!


Prior Experience

This year will be my 21st year of teaching! I have spent the past 14 years teaching Kindergarten here in the Amphitheater School District at Innovation Academy, Prince Elementary and Rio Vista Elementary. Prior to that,  I was a first grade teacher for one year at Oyama Elementary, and a kindergarten teacher for five years at Indian Oasis Primary School.  If you haven't noticed yet, I LOVE teaching kindergarten students!


Core Educational Beliefs

I  truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. We all (teachers, staff, and parents) play an important role in educating students.
