Student & Family Liaison
Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! My name is Rosana Garza, Family Specialist at Roan Forest Elementary. I am originally from Brownsville, Texas but San Antonio has been my home since 2007. This is my 5th year with NEISD and my 13th year in an educational setting providing services to students and their families. I have worked in the social service field for over 19 years.
My role as a Family Specialist is to empower parents to become active participants in the education of their children. I am here to provide support and services for students and their families. Working together we will motivate students, and have a wonderful school year.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached by email or in person during school business hours.
