Vice Principal

Welcome to the Vice Principal’s page! My name is Jessica Garza and I am so honored to be a Kay Franklin Colt! I have been in education since 2001. Since then in Northside ISD, I have taught fourth grade at Powell Elementary and third grade and Campus Instructional Technologist at Shirley J. Howsman Elementary.  In 2013, in its inaugural year, I was appointed as Vice Principal at Kay Franklin Elementary.

I attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Biology. Later I received a Master’s degree in Integrated Technology from Walden University. This degree was earned through a PAVE grant that was offered through a partnership with NISD and Walden University. Finally in 2010, I earned a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Go Runners! Needless to say, education plays an important part in my life and those around me.

At Kay Franklin Elementary we strive to keep our school safe, keep our students motivated and keep the best interests of the child at heart. We are committed to encouraging students to meet high expectations and in turn max out their true potential.

I encourage you to contact me at anytime if you have questions, concerns, or comments.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.

Start Strong, Stay Strong, Finish Strong!

Mrs. J. Garza
