Yianet Garcia

My Name is Yianet, I am in the Elementary Education program from Southern Illinois University at the University Center. I would like to teach first or second grade. If possible I would also like to try to teach bilingual students. I enjoy being outdoors and go for bike rides, runs, and long walks anytime I can take to do this I am outside. I currently have 2 jobs one as a retail coordinator and one as a host for gymnastic parties. I am always on the go!
