How has this person changed your life?

Ms. Garwick has changed my life through the example she shows to her colleagues and students on a daily basis. I am a counselor and I have learned so much from her undying positive regard for her students. No one works harder than her. She shows up early and stays late to create exciting lessons for her students. As a foreign language teacher, she is very active in the Houston Area Teachers of Foreign Languages, a professional association. Previously she has served as the Spanish language Chair, as well as other leadership positions within that association. She has also been honored as a Honorary Lifetime Member of HATFL after having served the board for 10 years.
