Wanda Vasquez Garcia presents her book to Pioneer students

Wanda Vasquez Garcia has been  a music teacher at Escuela Bilingüe Pioneer for the past five years, but her love for music began at a very young age. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, her father, a librarian for the National Symphony Orchestra in the Dominican Republic, played a crucial role in her musical upbringing, opening doors to opportunities that she might not have otherwise encountered.
