Hola! Bienvenidos a mi página. My name is Patricia Gacha. I am very excited to be a part of Carr Middle School. This is my fifth year here and can't wait to see all of your happy faces.

BIO

I was born in Bogotá, Colombia and moved to the U.S. thirteen years ago. I am married and have two boys. I really enjoy spending time with them and my husband. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, dancing, and going to the beach. I can't imagine a day without a cup of coffee!

When I left my country in 1999, I went to Costa Rica and lived there for six years. It was a great experience! You should travel there if you have the opportunity. It's a beautiful country, full of advetures for everyone.
