Mr. Jose Garcia


My name is Jose Garcia. I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. I am the youngest of 5 brothers and sisters. I am a licensed barber and along with my father, owned and operated Port Isabel Barber shop in Port Isabel, Texas for 9 years. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Brownsville. Both my wife and I were recruited by Dallas ISD in 1996 where I completed my Alternative Certification in Education. I am married and have three beautiful daughters. In my leisure time, I enjoy playing golf, landscaping, and repairing things around the house. I have 22 years of experience in education. I worked at Dallas ISD for 5 years where I taught third, kinder, first and was also the bilingual reading recovery teacher.  I am currently at Duncanville ISD where I have worked for the last 17 years, all at Merrifield, having taught kinder, first and second grade. This will be my fourth year as a reading center teacher.  I enjoy teaching, motivating and building relationships with children and I always look forward to a new year!
