Hello, my name is Maria Garza. I am so happy to be your child’s 4th grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my 20th year in education. I have taught 8 years as a 4th grade teacher and 11 years as a 5th grade teacher. This is my third year working with the Alvin Independent School District and I am super excited to be part of the Walt Disney Wildcat family.


I grew up in Alton, Texas. This city is located in the Rio Grande Valley. I attended Mission High School. I graduated from the University of Texas-Pan American with a Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Bilingual in August of 2000. I went back to school and received my Master’s degree as a Reading Specialist from U of H Clear Lake. I am married to Jose and have five children, Nicole, Ruben, Laura, Ana, and Iris. I have six grandchildren: Erica, Trinity, Logan, Alyssa, Aaron and Ethan Enzo.


I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
