A first-generation college student, Garcia Angeles started his life in a farming community in Mexico. When he was 9, he moved with his family — his “amazing parents who have only a third- and sixth-grade education” — to Oregon, where he started fourth grade as an English language learner. Now, as the first in his family to attend and graduate college, he is pursuing his master of arts in teaching at Pacific, planning to work at a Title I school in or near Hillsboro.
