Garza, Nena - CTE HST

Maria Olivia Garza RD, LD

Welcome!! I am Maria Olivia Garza (AKA Nena Garza).  This is my tenth 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 clinical dietitian and  in the food service industry, teaching is my passion.  I love to reach and enrich the minds of today's youth. 
Four years ago, I became a Certified Medical Coder and started offering the Medical Billing and Coding class to District Senior students.  The MBC students are eligible to earn a certification as a Certified Insurance and Coding Specialist, which gives them the opportunity to work in a medical office, hospital or a medical billing company straight out of high school!!!!
