Mrs. Aliah Garcia

Hi there!  My name is Mrs. Aliah Garcia and I am honored to be teaching at James L. Day Middle School! 2023-24 is my first year here! This will be my 20th year of teaching and my 12th in the TVUSD district (I taught the other years in the LA County area).  Of those 20 years I've taught middle school, alternative education, online school and the majority of the time have taught high school biology! I am excited for the opportunity to be a middle school 8th grade science teacher!

I got my bachelor's degree from Whittier College and my masters from Western Governors University.  I am married to Mr. Ryan Garcia who is also a science teacher and is at Chaparral HS and is also a football/track coach there. We have six children- four girls and two boys.  Our oldest is a first grade teacher, are other 3 girls are in college and our two boys are in 10th and 11th at Chapparal HS.  I love spending time with my family, serving in Young Life, the Lakers, Raiders, golf, football, track & field (especially the pole vault), science, sunsets, going to the movies, and getting time to read a good book.
