Mrs. McLeod, Canton Intermediate School Principal, adds that Mrs. Garcia's work ethic is admirable. When given a last-minute assignment or task, she is always willing and ready to tackle it or take it on without any complaints. Not only does she immediately step up to given challenges, but she is one who takes ownership of the assignment by given 110% every time. She definitely values and takes pride in her work. Every day she supports our ESL students both in and out of the classroom. The relationships she has established with each of these students is one built on respect and trust. She is often their voice when they are unsure of how to express their thoughts or feelings. CIS campus is fortunate to have someone like Mrs. Garcia who truly enjoys kids and loves their job.
