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 13 years.
I teach math here at Pittsburg High School. Every year can be different but this year I am teaching Pre-Calculus Honors and a combination Algebra 2/Pre-Calculus Class. I am the chair of our math department and co-advisor for the Class of 2021.
I love questions and mistake-making and am very excited when the students allow us to deep dive into their mistake-making in class. Every day is different but we're all learning on this spinning rock we call the Earth.
