Wanda Vasquez Garcia presents her book to Pioneer students

Wanda Vasquez Garcia has been  a music teacher at Escuela Bilingüe Pioneer for the past five years, but her love for music began at a very young age. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, her father, a librarian for the National Symphony Orchestra in the Dominican Republic, played a crucial role in her musical upbringing, opening doors to opportunities that she might not have otherwise encountered. Bilingualism and her multicultural background serve her well in her role as the music teacher at a dual language school. Now, her mission is to extend those possibilities to her students, helping them grow and learn through music.
