Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. of History
My name is Roel Cruz Garcia, but the students will know me as Mr. Cruz. I was born in Arlington, Texas. Following High School, I moved to Los Angeles where I pursued a career in Mixed Martial Arts and personal training. I eventually joined the Navy and was fortunate enough to spend time in both Japan and South Korea. Once I was back in the states I decided to pursue a career in teaching with a focus in History. This is my first year at Farley Middle School and I can't express how excited I am to spread my love for History to Hippo Nation!
