About Miss Garbach

Hello Saint Kateri Families!

I am so excited to be a part of the Kateri Community for the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my fifth year teaching, four of which have been in 1st grade. Last year I taught Kindergarten and I have the privilege looping with my kiddos up to 1st and I am SUPER excited!

I am currently enrolled in the Reading and Literacy Master’s Program, Birth-12th grade, at Brockport College. My bachelor’s degree is in Early Childhood Education from Mercyhurst University. In my free time I love to cook, read and be outside with my adorable Pittie, Duke! I am thrilled to be working again with you and your kiddo this year and look forward to an amazing year in 1st grade! 

Please feel free to contact me via email at: maria.garbach@dor.org or calling the school directly at: (585) 467-8730.
