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.
Some of my favorite things are:
My Family, teaching, the color pink, coffee, Harry Potter, Disney, Marvel, and Traveling
