Ms. De La Garza

Hi! I am the Reading Specialist at HPMS this year. This is my 6th year in education. I graduated from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with emphasis on bilingual education. I decided to continue on with my education and completed my Master’s degree last year in Educational Leadership also from UTRGV. I am very passionate about helping students succeed in English Language Arts and Reading. Through small group interventions and personalized instruction, I hope to help students surpass their academic goals.

I recently moved from the big city (Houston) and have enjoyed exploring the Hill Country. On my free time, I enjoy reading murder mysteries and young adult books, cuddling with my two pups, riding my bike around town, and trying new places to eat!

The best way to contact me in through email at I am so very excited to be a part of your child’s educational journey!
