Spanish - Sr. Jose A. Garcia


My Family includes four brothers and three sisters. I was born in the high remote mountains of Colombia in the town of Santa Barbara.  We lived in an even smaller remote town called Damasco before my mother moved us to the metropolis of Medellin where I graduated from High School at La Salle.  I immigrated to the United States in 1984 and became a Citizen in 1996. My College education began at Mayland Community College in Spruce Pine, NC and continued at UNC-Asheville where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish/Education.
My first teaching position was at A.C. Reynolds Middle School and I have taught at Cane Creek and Owen Middle schools as well. I moved to Kentucky in 2014 and began teaching at Reidland Middle and McCracken County High Schools. This year I am with two schools again; Reidland Intermediate and Middle.
My other interests include cooking, jogging, beachcombing, swimming, listening to many different types of music and horseback riding. When time and budget permits, I enjoy traveling to Colombia for family visits.

I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Murray State University and began teaching 28 years ago! In 1996 I was hired as a 6th grade teacher at Reidland Middle School and spent 17 years here before changing positions. I am so excited to again be a part of RMS as an instructional coach. I feel very fortunate to get to work with the awesome teachers and students at RMS. I am a graduate of the former Reidland High School and have lived in the Reidland/Farley community the majority of my life. I currently live in Reidland with my husband, Todd, and two sons, Zach and Wes.

Feel free to email me at or call 270-538-4190 ext. 8653 if I can be of assistance.
