Mrs. Garcia meets President Obama

Mrs. Ana Garcia is the bilingual tutor for LVESA.  She was able to visit the White House in December, 2013  and again in summer 2015, and meet President Obama because Mrs. Garcia's daughter works in the White House.  She is shown here with the Obama family pets.  We are very proud of Mrs. Garcia and thankful to have her working at Loma Vista.
