Welcome to the Koalas Room!
Hello! My name is Kathryn S. Garcia and I am excited to take on the position of the Lead teacher
in the Koalas room for 2012- 2013 year. This will be my eleventh year with Child’s Day and my
fourth year as a Lead teacher. Before becoming the Koalas Lead Teacher, I worked in the
Ducklings, Kangaroos, Honey Bears and Chicks rooms.
I am currently continuing my education at Austin Community College for my Associate Degree
in Child Development. I have been in the child-care field since 1998, working with children of all
ages in a day care facility and in a foster group home for special needs children.
I am looking forward to getting to know both you and your children throughout the year. This is
going to be an adventure, and I realize that this can be a challenging transition for both children
and their parents. I assure you that we will do everything we can to make the transition as
smooth as possible. I expect a year filled with new experiences. I hope to establish and maintain
a strong communication pattern between school and home.
Please feel free to ask questions, make observations and share ideas. It is important to me that
we work as team to provide the best possible care for your child.
