    Welcome!  My name is Winnie Garcia.  I am very excited to be your child's Fundamentals Teacher for the 2018 - 2019 school year.  This will be my 3rd year at Fairview Junior High.  I had previously worked at Glenn York Elementary for 3 years as a paraprofessional. 
    I am married and have two grown children.  My son is currently attending Alvin Community College and my daugher is a senior at Shadow Creek High School.  My family and I moved to Houston from New York City in 2012.  We love it here in Texas!  Before I became a teacher, I was an international banker, having worked at World Trade Center in NYC for over twelve years.  I will incorporate my business knowledge and experiences into the classroom to help students make connections to current events.
    I earned my Bachelors Degree in Social and Clinical Psychology from Western Connecticut State University.  I enjoy helping children learn and to achieve their fullest potential.  When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and friends.  Some of my hobbies include traveling, cooking and shopping.  
    My classroom environment will be safe, structured and fun.  I strongly believe that parents and teachers must work together as a team to ensure the success of our students.  Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with any questions and/or concerns.  
    I am looking forward to another wonderful and successful school year!
