Principal's Message

Maverick Family, 
 
It is such a privilege to join Midkiff Elementary as your new Campus Principal! My tenure in education includes ten years at La Joya ISD as a classroom teacher, four years at McAllen ISD as an assistant principal and six years as a principal at MCISD.  Throughout my educational experience both as a student at Mission CISD and as an instructional leader, I have had the opportunity to learn from peers and refine practices to ensure that teaching and learning is engaging and prescriptive to student needs.
 
Being a part of the Midkiff learning community, I look forward to continuing the excellence that is associated with being a Maverick . You are each valued and important, as we work collaboratively to ensure the welfare and education of our students. 
 
As we anchor ourselves in our goals and vision for the school year, we will remain steadfast to the commitments we have made and open-minded to the onset of new learning opportunities.  Confucius said it best when he stated, “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential…these are the keys that unlock the door to personal excellence.”  This is our time Mavericks, we need to ready our fields to yield a healthy and bountiful harvest.  Together, we are an unstoppable force driven by common goals and the commitment to be nothing short of great!!!!  Are you ready?  Let’s make it so!
 
Best Regards,
 
Myra A. Garza, M.A. Ed
