Garcia, Desiree

Hi! I’m Ms. Garcia and I am so excited to be at South Loop for a third year! I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Chicago in a small neighborhood known as Pilsen. Growing up in Pilsen helped me grow close to my heritage and culture, and master the Spanish language.

I went to high school at Jones College Prep, where I was inspired by my phenomenal teachers to pursue a career in middle school education, at Loyola University Chicago.
During my free time, I enjoy exploring the city, trying out new restaurants with my family. I also enjoy watching Netflix, dancing, and doing makeup. But I especially enjoy spending time with my awesome, sassy 5-year old daughter, Mia.
