About Me

My name is Ines Garcia. I was born in the Dominican Republic. I am a wife and a mother to a four-year-old boy. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University in Religious Studies. After graduation, I started working with school-age children. I moved to New York City in 2014 where I worked as a Youth Counselor for two years in Yonkers. Later I obtain a certification for Early Childhood Education. I worked as a Preschool Teacher for about four years. last year I decided to go back to school for my Master’s degree. I want to work with high school students. My passion is working with teenagers. I currently work at a high school.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to become an expert in the field of teaching and I am also looking forward to work with a co-teacher.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

Ms. Smith left a lasting impression on me. She was my ninth grade science teacher in high school. She made learning fun and easy to understand. I sign up for her class every year.
