Hello, I am Amarís García and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a part of the MAT Social Studies Cohort. I am originally from Riverside, CA, but currently live and work in Santa Maria, CA. I graduated Class of 2020 from the University of California Santa Barbara with a B.A. in Sociology and a Minor in Applied Psychology. I took a gap year to substitute teach. I have been working as a long-term substitute teacher in a 4th grade Dual Language Immersion class and a 12th-grade Economics and Government class. I am looking forward to living and learning in Providence and working with others with the same passion for students.
