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.
