Claudia Garza - Counselor
Hello Wonderful Silverlake Families! My name is Claudia Garza, and I am the new counselor here at the Lake. I was a fourth-grade Math teacher here for the last five years, and it is indeed a blessing to spread my wings in this new role at my home campus. This year will be my tenth year in education.
A little bit of my wonderful and supportive family: My husband Nick and I have been married for 18 years, and we have two wonderful sons, Nico, a 7th grader at BMJH, and Alejandro, a 4th-grade STAR. This year our boys will be keeping us busy after-school with football games, baseball tournaments, and being their uber driver. When we are not doing all of that, we love spending time with our families and friends. Oh, and we LOVE the ASTROS!!
I am over the moon excited to support all our STAR students this year! I will advocate for your child's needs, build relationships, and teach impactful lessons that they can use to develop socially and emotionally.
We are a team, and I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
Happy 2021 -2022 School Year!
