Mr. Jorge Garcia

Greetings!!  Welcome to another exciting school year!!  I am honored to be a part of the STEM Academy here at LEE HS.  I am beginning my 2nd year at STEM and my 5th year as an educator.   I am El Paso, TX, born and raised.  After graduating high school in 2007 I moved to Austin to attend UT (Hook 'em Horns!); I guaduated in 2011 with a BS in Biochemistry.  Afterwards, I came to San Antonio to attend graduate school at UTSA, where I earned graduate hours in Chemistry.  Utlimately, my calling to teach came in 2015 when I left graduate school to pursue a career in education, and have not looked back ever since.  Outside the classroom, I enjoy sight-seeing, day trips to nearby towns, and taking time to visit my hometown to be with my family and two nephews.

This year, I am teaching AP Physics I and II, as well as AP Research (the 2nd course in the AP Capstone sequence).  In addition, I will also be the coordinator for the Science and Engineering Fair.  Any questions you may have, please feel free to email me.  I am very excited for for this upcoming school year and looking forward to working with all of my students!
