Garcia, Kathleen

Hello, MATH enthusiasts. 
My name is Kathleen; but, many call me MATH-lean.

If you have met me, you can easily figure out why. Math is my #1 favorite pastime, and daily yoga keeps me lean.

My teaching life in a nutshell:
This is my 34th year of teaching: 27 years of teaching at Loretto Academy and seven here at Newman Elementary as the Math Coach. I have taught every elementary grade level Pre-Kinder (for one day only - ask me to tell that story someday) through sixth grade, computer lab, physical education, several graduate classes at New Mexico State University, gymnastics, baby-swim-gym, and believe it or not...Senior Citizen Aerobics.

* Master of Education – Instructional Technology - UTEP
