Voices of CSE: Moises Garcia, '20

Moises Garcia, '20, plans on being the teacher he needed most during elementary school.

"Far too often, students don't have a teacher that they feel comfortable going to for help,” explains Garcia. "I want to connect with students, provide them with practical experiences and challenge them to think beyond the textbook."

Next spring, Garcia will become the first male to graduate as an educator from CSE’s traditional undergraduate program.
