Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!!!! My name is Tanya Garcia a.k.a. Ms. Tanya. What an Amazing journey we get to embark on together, and I can't wait to see how much your child will grow this year. In TK, your child will learn the foundation of social emotional development, letter/number recognition,
better hand writting skills as well as their
shapes and phonics. There is so much planned this year and I can't wait to get to know you and your Family.
A little about me:
I graduated with the class of 1998 and am a St. Paul's alumni. St. Paul's has so many memories for me and is my home away from home. This school is where I met my best friend and fell in love with my childhood sweet heart. We have 2 boys who will be attending St Paul's this year as well. I graduated from Salesian high school in Richmond with the class of 2002 and went on to get my Bachelors of Art in psychology at Dominican Univeristy of California in San Rafael. During my time there, I was intrigued by the many ways kids learned and developed so differently; that I dedicate most of my time working at child care centers where I quickly discovered my love and passion for kids. I have over 9 years of experience working with this age group, and know that every child is their own unique self. I believe the essence of teaching, is about creating meaningful learning experience for every child, and can not wait to share them with your children!!!
