Irma Garcia has been a teacher at Robb Elementary School for the past 23 years.

“My tia did not make it, she gave herself protecting the kids in her classroom, I beg of you to keep my family including all of her family in your prayers, IRMA GARCIA IS HER NAME and she died a HERO,” Garcia’s nephew wrote on social media. Many people adored her, and she will be sorely missed.
Garcia addressed a letter to her pupils at the start of the school year, revealing details about her life.
She wrote in the note, “I’m already looking forward to the start of the new school year. This will be my twenty-third year of teaching, all of which have been at Robb Elementary.
I’ve been a co-teacher with Ms. Mireles for the past five years. I enjoy grilling with my husband, listening to music, and going on country cruises.”
Mireles, a wife and mother, had also been a teacher for 17 years, according to reports.
She was characterized as “the life of the party” by many who knew her because of her passion of hiking, bicycling, jogging, and caring for her three pets.
