Third Grade

Garcia_102x122Welcome to the Third Grade Home Page!

Genesis Garcia is very enthusiastic and eager to join St. Anthony of Padua School as a 3rd grade teacher next year. She was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Surrounded by teachers in her family, she passionately pursued the calling of becoming one herself. She grew up in a Catholic community, attended public elementary and a Catholic high school. She attended one of the well-known and most respected universities in the Philippines, Far Eastern University, where she earned a Bachelor of Secondary Education, with Major in Mathematics. As she was in college, she became an active student leader under the Institute of Education. She became a delegate in different conferences–locally, and in Asia.

Ms. Garcia has been a classroom teacher for four years–one in Kindergarten and three years in a 2nd and 3rd Grade combination class. Having two classes tested her teaching abilities, but also taught and trained her to be a better and competent teacher. She believes as well that to teach is to touch lives. Teaching and touching lives of young minds make her feel her worth and her purpose—an instrument of God. She is very excited to share the knowledge and talent God has given her in able to help nurture and recognize her students’ potentials and God-given abilities.
