4th Grade Teacher
My name is Kenya Garcia and I am a Memphian from the great state of Tennessee. I moved to Texas my eight grade summer and am so happy I did. After being in Texas for about eight months, I learned Spanish. SHOCKING, huh? I believe two years of Latin that I had to take in Memphis helped me learn Spanish rather quickly. I have four beautiful children, Safari, Esteban, Isaac, and Victoria. We have a very cute, smart dog named Bella, who thinks she's my other daughter! My handsome husband, David, and I have been married for eight years.
Because of a very kind and discerning teacher when I was in the 5th grade, I became a teacher. She showed me that she believed in me and that I was smart, despite what my environment spoke to me. It is because of her, I passionately pour into students. I know that they sometimes they need an extra someone to show them that they our loved - that they can do it - no matter what their environment speaks to them! I LOVE being a teacher at Powell and I LOVE every student. This year is going to be a great year!
Oh, and... I teach 4th grade science.
