Mission Statement:
 
My mission as a teacher is to guide students into developing academic and leadership skills. My goal is to show students how to "tap in"  to their strengths and focus on all of the positive possibilities that can be reached through perseverance and learning from their mistakes. Ideally, students should not just be taught what they need to know, but they also must develop a desire to continue to be lifelong readers and learners.
 
About Me:
 
My name is Jacklyn De la Garza, and this is my eleventh year of teaching at Palmer Laakso Elementary. I grew up in Brownsville, TX. I graduated from Homer Hanna High School and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education at the University of Texas at Brownsville. In the summer of 2017, I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in Literacy Studies.
