Garza, Laura

Welcome to my website!

Hello, I'm Laura Garza and I am proud to be a Mustang at John Jay High School and Science and Engineering Academy.  My hometown is Laredo, TX where I taught English, Speech, Reading, and Practical Writing at my Alma Mater of J.W. Nixon High School for five years.  I received a bachelor's degree in English from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX in 1999 and a master's degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M International University in 2004.  I'm married to my wonderful husband of 5 years and I'm a proud mommy of my 4 year old son and my one year old daughter. I enjoy traveling, reading, running, and spending time with family and friends. This is my tenth year at Jay HS and first year in the Science and Engineering Academy.

I love working with students in helping them succeed and strive for a better future!
