Hello! My name is Kevin Garza, and I am the new orchestra teacher here at Williams!
While this is my first year of true public school teaching, I've taught for several years prior. When I finished my Bachelor's degree from Indiana University, I became a substitute teacher. I've also taught private lessons for several years, most recently in Forney and Mesquite. Over time I found out that teaching is something I'm good at and enjoy, so I decided to earn my alternate certification and teach orchestra. As a fellow Plano grad, I am really excited to be here at Williams and work with your child.
Some things I enjoy outside of teaching are cooking, composing my symphony, going to the Saturday Farmer's Market with my wife and daughter, and learning the keyboard works of Johann Sebastian Bach.
I look forward to getting to know your child! Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the orchestra program here at Williams.
