Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education Specialization in Early Childhood

Mrs. Tami Chadwell Garcia

I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Elementary Education in 1989.  I taught Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades for ten years at Birdville ISD in Fort Worth.  My family and I relocated to San Antonio where I continued teaching 5th grade for one year in Northside ISD. I have spent the rest of my teaching career in Northeast ISD right here at our own Thousand Oaks Elementary.

When my youngest daughter was born I took off a few years to spend time with her. Teaching is my passion and although I will never regret staying home with my daughter, I yearned to be back in the classroom.  I have been blessed with the incredible opportunity to teach 5th grade again at Thousand Oaks not far from my former classroom. Twenty three years and counting!!!!!!!!!
