Espinoza-Garcia Family Album

My name is Araceli Garcia and my husband's name is José Espinoza. We come from Mexico. We have two kids, Jocelynne Espinoza Garcia and José Loiz Jr. Espinoza Garcia. We are a strong, happy family.

When I was sixteen years old, I moved to the United States with my brother Salvador. I went to Menlo Atherton High School and got my diploma. Then I went to Cañada College in Redwood City to study nurse assistant. I received my diploma in 1996. I am now studying CEC Units for Early Childhood Education at Cañada College, and have received my certificate. I will continue and receive my teaching credential so I can have a good future for me and my kids.
