She completed her MA in Curriculum and Instruction in 2004 and holds a Seventh-day Adventist Professional teaching credential. Although in the past Mrs. Garcilazo had said that she would never teach 7th and 8th grades, she now says that these grades are the best grades ever. Mrs. G. particularly enjoys teaching Math because she loves that good feeling that comes after sucessfully solving a hard problem. Besides teaching Math, Mrs. Garcilazo also enjoys hiking, reading, gardening and traveling with her family.
