5th Grade Science/Social Studies Teacher
Hello and welcome to my webpage.My name is Vanessa Garcia. I am a 5th grade Science/Social Studies teacher at Sudderth Elementary. I was born and raised in Fort Stockton and graduated in 2002. I moved to Alpine to continue my education at Sul Ros State University. In the summer of 2002 I met my husband Diego through a college prep program I started while I was in high school name Upward Bound and we have been together ever since. After switching majors and continuing my education we moved to Odessa in 2007 and graduated from Sul Ross State Univeresity in May of 2007 with a Bachelors in Science. I was an optometrist technician for Dr. Schitosky for a year before moving to Ft. Stockton. In Ft. Stockton I was an optometrist technician for Dr. Pass for a year before my husband’s job relocated us to Monahans. I started out as a classroom aide in 2010, then an opportunity came along where I was given a class of my own. I got certified through Region 18 and am in my 8th year of teaching. I enjoy every day of it.
My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary in July, togther we have two wonderful boys, Diego Gabriel age 10, and Santiago Gadiel age 2 that keep us on our toes. We love the community and are happy to call Monahans home.
