Welcome to my teacher page! My name is Mr. Garcia and I am one of the 5th grade ELA and Social Studies teachers this year. This is my third year teaching at Horace Mann and I couldn't be more happy to return to another year of fun and excitement! I learned a lot about what it means to be a teacher last year and I'm ready to put what I learned to the test as I strive to create a fun and active learning environment for my students this year. When I'm not teaching I enjoy reading, watching movies, playing games, and spending time with friends and family. I'm looking forward to another rewarding and productive school year!
