Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melanie Garcia
Welcome to Sixth Grade!
It is a pleasure to work with you this school year. This is my 7th year teaching at AMS. I am currently teaching math, science, and ELD. Teaching brings me great joy because I see the academic and mature growth of my students from the beginning of sixth grade through the time they leave 8th grade and move on to high school.
I am an Antioch resident who moved here when I began teaching in this district. I am originally from Maryland, and moved to California in 1990. I was also in the Navy, and lived in Illinois and Florida. I have a husband, a teenage daughter, and four dogs.
I earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at Saint Mary's College, in Moraga, CA. Before that, I earned my B.A. Degree at CSU Dominguez Hills, in Carson California. I am currently enrolled in a Master's Degree Program to earn my Administrator Credential in Education. I chose to become a teacher because I love working with the youth! I am here to help in anyway. Feel free to communicate with me anytime.
