Garza, Nena - CTE HST


                                  Maria Olivia Garza RD, LD

Welcome!! I am Maria Olivia Garza (AKA Nena Garza).  This is my twelfth 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 and Medical Terminology which prepares those students wanting to pursue a career in the health science pathway. I hope to open the eyes and the communication skills of these students to the world of medicine.

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