First Grade Teacher/Team Leader
Ashley Garcia Bio
Hi, my name is Ashley Garcia and cannot wait to get to know each and everyone of the First Graders this year. This will be my 11th year of teaching! I came to Walker Elementary FIVE years ago and am so thankful for the opportunity to be a teacher at such an incredible school! I would love to share with you a little bit about me. I grew up in a small town called League City, which is exactly halfway between Houston and Galveston. Since I was a little girl I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and couldn’t imagine doing anything else as my career. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos where I received my degree in Early Childhood Education. From there, I was asked to come for an interview in Allen, Texas and at the time I had no idea where that exactly was but once I came I immediately fell in love with North Texas and decided this is where I wanted to call home. I am married to my wonderful husband, Victor Garcia. We have two incredible boys, Cameron, who will be a Freshman and Jessie who will be in 7th. We also have two precious dogs, Rascal Roo and Remy Sue. In our spare time, we enjoy watching sports, traveling, swimming in our pool and going out to eat. I am looking forward to a fantastic year and building an everlasting relationship with your children and YOU ALL!
