My name is Diane Garza, and I am so excited to be your Parent Liaison here at Pleasanton ISD.
I am a home grown Pleasanton Eagle. I am married and have two children. My oldest works for Pleasanton ISD and my youngest is attending Lincoln College of Technology in Grand Prairie, TX.
My husband and I are both PISD alumni and both our children graduated from PISD. I started working for PISD in 1984 as the Kindergarten Center Principal’s Secretary which became Pleasanton Primary School, in 2008 I transferred to the payroll department and then in 2011 I became the HS Principal’s Secretary and retired in December 2014 with 31 years of service with PISD.
After being retired for a few months I realized I missed the involvement at PISD. So I am truly excited to be back & couldn’t be happier. I look forward to working with you as a team and to make your child successful. I hope to encourage parents to get involved in their students education by coming to the school and communicating with PISD staff and teachers. We will be offering trainings along with family functions that we hope you will be able to attend.
