Brooke Garcia, Lead Teacher of the Green Preschool Class (4 & 5 year olds)

Greetings Families,
I am Ms. Brooke! I have worked at Tenderfoot for three years as an aide and now I’m a lead teacher in my own classroom. I have a bachelor’s degree in Art History with minors in French and English. I have also taken a few Early Childhood Education courses. I have lived in Gunnison for seven years, and have settled down here with my little family; my son, Nicanor, and husband Juan.

These kids are always a breath of fresh air and I am lucky to have a chance to work with them! There are many great and endearing moments throughout my day but my favorite part of the day is circle. Circle allows the children to calm their bodies and focus on the positive things we are teaching them!
