Hello My Name Is...

Ricardo Garcia


About Mr. Garcia:
I have been working in education for nine years. I started out as a tutor and have slowly climbed up the ladder until last year becoming a Special education teacher. This is my second year teaching and I look forward to constantly be learning and growing as a teacher. I am dedicated to promoting life long learners in my classroom who are ready to tackle life with passion and purpose.

I was born in Porterville, CA and graduated from Monache high school. I attended UC Santa Barbara were I began my first job as a tutor while going to school. It was there that I discovered my passion for working with kids. After graduating I moved back to Porterville to continue working in education as an instructional aide. I eventually realized I want to lead my own class and shortly after beginning my credential program I started my first year teaching at Akers. I love working with the middle school students at Akers.
