6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Back-To-School Dance
Meet Our Math Specialist
My name is Rebecca Garcia, and I have always enjoyed the subject of Mathematics. I am an alumni of the San Antonio Pre-Freshman Engineering Program, Douglas Mac Arthur H.S. where I graduated in the top 5% of my class, and St. Mary’s University where I received my B.A. in Mathematics with Teacher’s Certification 8th through 12th. I have been tutoring students in mathematics at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School for five years, as well as, tutoring high school students from Central Catholic H.S., Incarnate Word H.S., Antonian College Preparatory H.S., and various public schools. I am familiar with the high school math curriculum, which gives me the edge to incorporate what the students need to learn and comprehend to be successful when they graduate St. Gregory the Great Catholic School. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every student so that I can assess and adapt our mathematics curriculum to strengthen their skills and be successful each year.
