Welcome to Ms. Garcia's Teacher Page

 Hi! I’m Elizabeth “Lisa” Garcia and I’m proud to be a teacher at San Lorenzo Unified School District.  I love science, my dogs (Churro and Bear), and teaching.  This is my 20th year as a teacher having taught first grade through high school through adult Chemistry and English as a Second Language. I grew up in Southern California, but my family is from Spain and I enjoy returning to Galicia to visit my family.

I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.

Sangha Interactive App

I am using Google Classroom to manage assignments.  If you would like daily or weekly digests of activities and missing assignments, I can invite you as a guardian.  Please email me with your request and email address.
