Esmeralda Garza

1st Grade Teacher


I am  a first grade teacher at Aspire Tate Academy. This will be my 9th year teaching and 8th year at  Aspire Tate Academy. I was the first to graduate from my family. I graduated from the university of Cal State Long Beach. I grew up in Los Angeles and attended Florence Elementary, Edison Middle School and Huntington Park High School.

I knew I wanted to work with children after volunteering at a special needs classroom when I was in high school. Since then, I pursued my dream of working with kids and became a teacher in 2008 after received my Bachelor’s and Credential Degrees.

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy shopping, dinning-out, and spending time with family. My family and I have taken road trips to Mount Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Big Bear. To relax I like to go camping. Now that you know more about me I would love to meet you. When you have a chance stop by and say hello.
