Ms. (Gabby) Arca is the lead teacher for our Pacific Coast Division. She cannot wait to jump in with the Global Division team! She was born and raised in San Leandro/Oakland, CA, but is currently living in Eugene, OR with her family. She loves to eat, try new hobbies (sports! languages! art!), and be outside. On a typical day, you can usually catch her snacking in her garden, jamming to Motown, or playing with her pets. One of her favorite hobbies is reading ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of upcoming picture, middle grade, and YA books for publishers and diverse authors. If you get her started, she will have endless book recommendations! She is especially excited about teaching and learning with a new group of thoughtful young people and building an awesome community in such a tight-knit setting. Let the year with the brand new Global Studies Division begin!
