A wonderful, supportive and hilarious teacher that is super sweet and becomes part of your daily routine. She's one of the main reasons why French is my favourite subject. You follow a similar routine every day, but Garcia's personality makes it much more interesting. She'll be retiring soon, and I'm so glad to have experienced one of her classes! :)

Okay, so Mme Garcia is both my favourite person and teacher. I've always enjoyed French, but she made it 10x more fun. She's entertaining, she works hard to help everyone out...Hell, she can connect with anyone without really trying. She treats all students fairly and with respect. Honestly, I've talked to her so many times afterschool this semester and she always listens and laughs along. She's just so easy to get along with. Her teaching style is amazing btw. MERCI MME GARCIA! JE VS AIME BCP!

The first week of school i had with Madame Garcia i was considering to drop the course but i didn't and i am so happy that i made that decision. Madame Garcia had helped me with my french and she actually made french one of my favorite classes. A few of my friends tells me that she just picked me as a favorite which might be the case but i haven't seen her mistreat anyone and she will call out even the smartest student for mistakes. Overall, one of the best teachers i've had!!

I had Ms Garcia for both French and Spanish(which aren't my best subjects). Her teaching method is pretty effective however she does pick favorites(usually girls in MY EXPERIENCE) and she does pick people she hates and will condemn you to every mistake you make. However she can sometimes be funny and is very knowledgeable within her subjects. So to conclude she is a good teacher but...... NOT your friend.

A truly outstanding teacher. I had her for grade 10 Spanish, and as a result of her succinct style of teaching, had never learned so much in one semester. Her tests are fair and learning in her class is fun, making Ms. Garcia one of the best teachers at Graydon.

Now in first year university, and Senora Garcia continues to be my favourite and most influential teacher/prof I've ever had. She loves what she does and even if she occasionally embarrasses you in front of the class, with all the presentation you'll do you won't ever again have problems presenting in front of an audience. Anyone you meet that has had her, 90% chance they'll say she is their favourite teacher. Don't make a mistake and take her class (French or Spanish) - You won't regret it. ;)

I loved her class, I'm so inspired by her teaching, that I'm considering going to Spain for a summer exchange program, and I'm taking Spanish all throughout my university career. She's great, very thorough, and she loves to teach. I had her for four years, and I loved every bit of it.

People say she "suckssss" because they undoubtedly goofed up and decided to give up in her class. She is funny, and believes in having well rounded students. She is incredibly supportive and believes in second chances (ask about her life story!). She expects her students to participate and she actually cares enough to remember her student's responses for future years. Her energy is infectious and her purposefully cheesy jokes (why do people think they're supposed to be real jokes?) help us learn.

While she's got a unique teaching style, I don't really like it. She almost ridicules people for not knowing answers. When she realizes you haven't done your homework, she'll keep coming back to you on purpose. However, she really knows her stuff.
