Mrs. Joelle Garcia

Fifth Grade Teacher

Hello, and welcome to fifth grade! My name is Joelle Garcia.  I grew up in Houston, Texas with my parents and two older brothers.   I attended Stephen F. Austin State University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a certification in Early Childhood Development.  I continued my education at the University of North Texas to receive a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in Gifted Education.  I began her teaching career in Plano ISD in 1997at Thomas Elementary before opening Beverly Elementary in 1998 where I have taught second, fourth and fifth grades.  I live in Plano with my husband and three crazy dogs.  We have two beautiful grown daughters who were also Beverly Bobcats!   When not working, I  enjoy spending time with family in the country, reading, and traveling.
