Donida Garcia

Donida Garcia joined Meridian School in July of 2022. Her passion for nurturing and teaching children has always fueled her desire to work in education. Her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education was received from Eastern Washington University. For fourteen years, she taught kindergarten, first, second, third, and fifth grades in public, private, and charter schools.

In 2014, Mrs. Garcia relocated to Central Texas. Before joining Meridian, she taught at NYOS Charter School for seven years, where she also served as a school board member, committee chair for the board's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee, and was chosen as team leader for both the content and curriculum and grade level teams. She received her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and obtained her principal’s certification from Texas State University in 2022.

Mrs. Garcia enjoys spending time with her husband and two children who also attend Meridian. Some of her hobbies include spending time on the water, fitness, dancing, going to sporting events, playing board and card games, and reading. She is excited to be a part of the Meridian team and serve as an Assistant Principal on the PYP campus!
