Greetings Husky Nation,

My name is Xochitl Garcia, LBSW at Juarez-Lincoln High School. I have had the privilege of being JLHS Social Worker for the past 8 years and look forward to continue to provide that connection between Juarez-Lincoln High School, students, parents and community.

Service to students: I have an open-door policy to all students. I am here to assist you if you need a pencil, guidance or just need someone to talk to. 

Service to parents: Reach out to me if you need community resources, assistance with your child or to be part of our wonderful group of parent volunteers. I am here to provide you with the necessary resources so that you can continue to be the excellent parents you have been.

Service to staff: There are many factors that might be affecting a student’s performance such as health, financial stability, social issues, and so much more. Let me know if you need additional information on a student or how I might be able to assist in providing that additional assistance to student and their families. 

“Freedom for me is the sacred right to think… education is the fundamental part for social happiness; it is the principle on which liberty rests, and the growth of all town.” – Benito Pablo Juárez

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.”  -Abraham Lincoln
