Welcome!! I am Maria Olivia Garza (AKA Nena Garza).  This is my eleventh year teaching in the Health Science Department at Sharyland High School.  I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Dietetics at University of Texas Pan American and a Masters Degree in Curriculum Instruction from University of Texas in Austin. Although I have held positions as a dietitian in the clinical setting ,as well as, in the food service industry, teaching has always been my passion.  I love to reach and enrich the minds of today's youth. 
 
I teach Principles of Health Science which introduces students to the world of medicine and the vast career opportunities available for them to explore and pursue.  I also teach Medical Terminology which prepares those students wanting to continue in the health science pathway.

I also have the pleasure to serve as an SHS HOSA advisor.
