Ms. Roxana Gutierrez-Garcia
I am a Texas Native. I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. It is the southernmost tip of Texas and is surprisingly hotter and more humid than San Antonio. My husband and I have been married for over 10 wonderful years and are now a family of six. My husband and I welcomed our beautiful daughter Katia in 2010, our handsome son Efren in 2012 and our lovely twins Ander and Lina in 2016. I am a proud graduate of St. Mary's University. I have worked with children for over 20 years and have been the Family Specialist at NEISD for over 10 years. I look forward to working with you and your family. Please remember, I am here to help.
The mission of the North East ISD Family Engagement program is to build family engagement between parents, the school, and the community by facilitating communication; assisting students and families who are experiencing barriers; and, empowering parents to fulfill their role as their child’s first teacher.
