Mrs. Lori Garcia

Hello and welcome!

I am an English teacher at East Leyden High School and have been with the district since 2006. After graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I began my teaching career at West Leyden before coming over to the "East side" in 2012. This year I am teaching AP Seminar and English II College Prep. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to follow me to see what my students are up to via Twitter @Garcia_Lori
