Mrs. Tanisha McGarity


My name is Tanisha McGarity and I teach ALE 6-8th grades here at Wood Middle School. I will be starting my 5th year of education this year. I started out in SAISD and then went to Idea Public Schools. I started my journey here at Wood in January 2020. I have been married for 7 years to my loving husband and have six amazing children. I have been living here in San Antonio since 2012. I was born here in San Antonio but grew up in a small town in East Texas called Pittsburg. I graduated from high school there and moved to San Antonio for college. I completed my Bachelor's degree at the University of the Incarnate Word after starting my degree at Northeast Texas Community College. I also recieved my Master's degree at UIW and my principal certification through a UIW and Region 20 partnership. I enjoy teaching and couldn't imagine not working with children. I can't remember a time when I was not doing some type of job that didn't involve children in some way. I can't wait to start this school year and learn and grow together. Despite this pandemic we will all be successful and we will get through this together.
