Spring Branch ISD

Alicia Garza, Speech Language Pathologist, M.S., CCC-SLP

Hi Wildcats!


I would like to introduce myself, if I may.  I'm your new Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), and I'm so excited to be here at Spring Shadows.  I have been helping people become better communicators for almost ten years now.  Before coming to Spring Branch ISD, I worked with Aldine ISD at various elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools.  And before that (in another lifetime), I was an ESL teacher for a dual-language charter school.  I have been in the field of education for 17 years in some way or another, and I still believe one hundred percent in changing lives through public education.  In addition to being a school-based SLP, I also have worked in other settings: skilled nursing facility, private clinic, and rehabilitation center for patients recovering from stroke.  I just love the field, and if you have any questions about it, please ask.  But I might talk your ear off if you're not careful!


In my non-work time, I have many interests.  I get excited about birds and birdwatching, and at my last school I sponsored an afterschool birdwatching club, Birds of a Feather.  That was a really incredible experience for me (and hopefully for the students too!), and I hope to start something like that at Spring Shadows in the future.  I love working in the yard and in my garden, I'm a proud cat-mom to my squad of "rescue" kitties, and my Instagram is filled with cats, butterflies, and beautiful sunsets and sunrises.  


I'm looking forward to getting to know all of my Spring Shadows family, students, families, and staff.  I'm here to help with communication needs, so if you have any questions ... either about a student, someone you know, or even yourself, please come see me.  I really love what I do and enjoy helping others find their voice.  


Thank you for reading, and I wish you a safe, happy, healthy day!

Love, Ms. Garza


PS.  Please wear a mask and stay safely distant from others!  We need you all here in your top capacity!
