Mr. Naka is a very dedicated Science teacher that believes in hands-on experiences that peak students' interests. Whether it's a Rocket Launch or Egg Drop, Mr. Naka always has students using critical thinking skills in real world experiments.
Mr. Naka also volunteers a number of hours to the Science Club which trains for Science competitions like LA County's Science Olympiad, the Navy's SeaPerch Challenge, and Mark Keppel High School's Science Field Day. Mr. Naka also spearheads the 8th grade field trip to Catalina Island every year.
We are very proud to have such a dedicated teacher.
Ms. Macias is the very dedicated principal of Garvey Intermediate School. She has served the Garvey Community as a teacher, school psychologist, elementary school principal and as intermediate principal for the last ten years.
She garners the respect of all staff members, students, and community members. She works closely with staff members to ensure that all students are free to learn in a safe learning environment. Also, she works with teachers to make sure all teachers are providing the best possible education to all students.
Congratulations to both Mr. Naka and Ms. Macias.
