My name is Caitlin Garza and I am very excited to start my third year at MMS! I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Spanish I. 

I was born in Houston, but lived in Memphis for most of my life. I received my Bachelor's degree in Spanish from The University of Mississippi and my Master's Degree in Education from The University of Memphis. In Memphis I taught Spanish I and Spanish II for grades 8-12. I moved back to Houston two years ago, and I am thrilled to be working at Memorial again this year!
