Hello! Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Jefferson Middle School. My name is Mr. Garcia and I will be your Social Studies or AVID teacher this year. This year marks my 17th year teaching at JMS. I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelors Degree in History and I have my Masters Degree in Education from Cal Poly Pomona. My wife and I have 4 children, two boys and two girls, and one is currently in middle school! I have high expectations for all of my students, and with your support our chances of success increase.
