I graduated from Hillsboro High School in Hillsboro, Texas. I attended Tarleton State University for my undergraduate degree and Tarleton State University-Central Texas for my master's degree. I spent the majority of my teaching years in Waco, Texas at La Vega ISD.
During my years at Cole Middle School, I have experienced some personal milestones. In the fall of 2013, I got married to my husband, Randall Garza. He is employed as the Director of Academic Advising and Retention at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio. Our son was born shortly after in August 2014. We have enjoyed our time in San Antonio so far and look forward to our continued service for the community.
