I am Jo Ann Garcia and I teach English II and English IV at Ben Bolt - Palito Blanco High school.
I am a native of San Diego, Texas, and I taught English at San Diego High School prior to working at Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco ISD. This is my 12th year in education...my 5th year at Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco High School.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Psychology from Texas A&M University-Kingsville and a Masters of Science degree in Higher Education/College Teaching from Walden University. I am currently working on my doctoral degree with an emphasis in curriculum and instruction.
My philosophy is: “With high expectations, patience and hard work, all students will be successful in and out of the classroom.”
