Living Our DPS Honoree: Lourdes Figueroa-Garcia

Lourdes Figueroa-Garcia
Teacher, DCIS at Ford

Ms. Lula brings fun and joy to her kindergarten classroom every day. She is constantly singing songs, joking with her students, and helping them internalize kindergarten concepts through building strong relationships with students and families. I never walk by her classroom without seeing laughter and joy from all of her students. Her fun classroom also creates an accessible environment wherein 100% of students are all-in, all of the time. Ms. Lula’s students and families love her and it’s clear that she is making a HUGE impact in their early learning. Ms. Lula is the kindergarten teacher we all wish we had, and I am so thankful that she is part of my team!”
