Claudia Garza - Counselor
Hello Wonderful Silverlake Families! My name is Claudia Garza; this will be my second year as Silverlake's counselor. I have been a fourth-grade Math teacher here, and it is a blessing to spread my wings in this new role at my home campus. This year will be my eleventh year in education.
A little bit of my wonderful and supportive family: My husband Nick and I have been married for 19 years, and we have two wonderful sons, Nico, an 8th grader at BMJH, and Alejandro, a 5th-grade Roger Rocket. This year our boys will keep us busy after-school with football games, baseball tournaments, and me being their uber driver. When not doing all that, we love spending time with our families and friends. Oh, and we LOVE the Houston ASTROS!!
I am excited about supporting all our STAR students this year! I will advocate for your child's needs, build relationships, and teach impactful lessons 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 2022 -2023 School Year!
