Reading Intervention IA
Teacher Rosaura - Nautilus Room
My name is Rosaura Garcia. I was born in Mexicali, Baja California. I love to read, ride bikes, and this summer, I learned how to ride scooters! I am married and have a daughter here at Oasis. What I like the most about being at Oasis is to be with children and learn with them as well. In 1995 I got my B.A in Psychology at the University Autonomous of Baja California. As psychologist I worked in private practice with teenagers and adults for about 10 years, and as teacher for the Office of Education Affairs in Mexico (SEP). I came to the United States in February of 2005, and that year I started learning English at Salinas Adult School. The following year I was taking classes at Hartnell College! Now, I have accomplished my goal of speaking English as my second language (still learning!) and receiving my foreign education equivalency. I'm looking forward to having a Masters Degree. Happy to be here!
