Hi! My name is Mary C. Garcia and I'm so excited about teaching First Grade! I graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Go Miners! I earned an Associate of Arts degree from El Paso Community College. I am certified to teach EC-6th grade.
I have worked with EPISD for 23 years. I started as a volunteer at Rusk Elementary School. I was hired as a paraprofessional and worked there for 19 years. I came to Powell Elementary as a paraprofessional, continuing my education at UTEP. I was very fortunate to have been hired as a Kindergarten teacher upon my certification from the state of Texas.
I taught Kindergarten for one exciting and memorable year. This is my second year teaching, and I am currently in first grade. I can't believe the year goes by as fast as it does! I love education and am a lifelong learner.
Thank you for the opportunity of letting me serve you and your child. If you need to contact me you can do so by either an email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling me during my conference period which is from 12:15-1:00. The school number is 774-7775. If you prefer you can also send me a note in your child's folder and I will send a reply asap.
