Mrs. Maria Garcia-Jimenez started her adventure in Moreland School District as an Instructional Aide in 2009. She worked with Kindergarten and SDC preschool students for six years before she moved to Latimer School in 2016. One thing that I love as a community Liaison is; “As our community keeps growing I love to help our new family to become familiar and be part of our beautiful Moreland Community. It is amazing to watch how our students that joined our District without any English become fluent in English and adapt to their daily routine at school so quickly.”
