Claudia Patino » Welcome


Hello, my name is Ms. Patino. I am a Special Education Teacher here at Garfield High School. I have been a teacher for 16 years and I love it. This is my fifth year as a proud bulldog. I graduated from California State University, Los Angeles and received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I worked with elementary school students for a few years then transitioned to Special Education. In my spare time, I like to volunteer in spay and neuter programs in the community and advocate for animals. I am an Iraq War veteran and currently serving in the National Guard. I am excited to be here and looking forward to a new school year.
