I am very honored to be the principal at this wonderful school. I am very pleased and excited to be working with such a committed group of professionals and hard working students.
Martha Garcia - Instructional Coordinator
Hello, I am Martha Garcia, Title I Coordinator. Welcome to another great school year here at Garcia Elementary. I look forward to working with parents, teachers and students each and everyday. Our campus is a Title I school because Title I is a federal funded program with the intent to improve the academic achievement of students who are economically disadvantaged. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). As Title I Coordinator, I coordinate the parental involvement monthly meetings, VIPS (Volunteers in Public School), grade level field lessons, and make sure that the Title I student data is up to date in the district’s system.
I also coordinate the Title III program on our campus. Our campus is also a Title III school because of the bilingual population on our campus. I keep up to date all the information relating to our LEP (Limited English Proficiency) student files and student data in the district’s system. As an educator, I strive to provide the best support to our students, teachers and parents. “To teach, to guide, to explain, to help, to nurture- these are life’s noblest attainments.” -Frank Tyger
