Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Vanessa Garcia Day

My previous students often call me Ms. Garcia but my students this year have begun to call me by my married name: Mrs. Day.  

I am a native Californian but have lived in Texas and Michigan at different times in my life.  I have a B.A. in Math from Our Lady of the Lake University - San Antonio and an M.S. in Math from Texas State University - San Marcos. 

As of the 2019-20 school year, I have been a professional educator for over 13 years. 

I teach math here at Pittsburg High School.  Every year can be different but this summer I am teaching a year-long Geometry course.  I am the chair of our math department and co-advisor for the Class of 2021.  

I love questions and believe making mistakes gives us an opportunity to learn.  I am very excited when the students allow us to deep dive into mistake-making in class.  Every day is different but we're all learning on this spinning rock we call the Earth.
