Family Engagement Liaison
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Roxana Gutierrez-Garcia
The most important gift in my life is my family. My husband and I have been married for over 15 wonderful years and are now a family of six. We welcomed our beautiful daughter Katia in 2010, our handsome son Efren in 2012 and our lovely twins Ander and Lina in 2016.
One of my greatest passions is to be in the service of others. This passion was developed and nurtured while being raised in Brownsville, Texas (it is the southernmost tip of Texas and is surprisingly hotter and more humid than San Antonio). My experiences while growing up with a lack of educational resources, but with much love, have fueled my devotion to help families navigate the school system and remove barriers preventing them from being meaningfully engaged in their child’s educational journey.
I am a proud graduate of St. Mary's University. Go Rattlers! I have worked with children for over 20 years and have been a Family Specialist at NEISD for over 15 years.
I look forward to working with you and your family. Please remember, I am here to help!
