Mrs. Garcia

Hello! I am Marla Garcia and I am the Learning Support I teacher at Hartwood Elementary. I was born and raised in Southern California. I have lived in Florida, Japan, and have settled in Virginia. I have taught in California, and at Department of Defense schools overseas in Okinawa, Japan. 

When I am not teaching I enjoy cooking, watching football (go Colts!), watching Formula 1 racing (Go McLaren!), and creative writing. 

Emily Clark and Stephanie Polickoski work alongside me to meet the instructional needs of the students in the LSI class.
