Mrs. De La Garza
I am grateful to be part of another exciting year teaching curious and energetic students. Boy does it seem like this year will be like no other.
I graduated in 1996 from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I joined the North East ISD family in 2009 as a science teacher at Wood Middle School. I have been married for 18 years and have 3 beautiful children. Tori my oldest was born in 2004, Jacen is my athlete born in 2006 and Daniel is the youngest born in 2008. So I am aware of the challenges of raising children as well as teens and preteens
My goal is to guide your children, as I do my own, to academic success and prepare them to achieve throughout life. I want your child to develop a self-confidence to express their knowledge. In my class, your child will benefit from a teacher who is a parent familiar with learning challenges and different learning abilities and styles. I look forward to collaborating with you this year.

Middle School Virtual Plan
Students will receive a blend of daily Synchronous and Asynchronous Instruction in all core areas. Students will receive:
- Dedicated A/B schedule
- Approximately four hours of required face-to-face instruction followed by independent work time
- Daily attendance required
- Purposeful group work
- Guided independent work
- Scheduled tutorials and interventions
- The teachers will be housed on campus; While every effort will be made to ensure the distance learning teacher is a teacher from the student’s home campus, there may be circumstances that necessitate a need to assign teachers from different campuses.
All days except Tuesday from 3:30-4:15pm
