Pre-Kindergarten B Teacher

Ms. Jamie Garcia

Hi, my name is Jamie Garcia. I have lived in El Paso for two years and have had the opportunity to live all over the United States. My family has grown to love El Paso and we consider this home. I currently hold a associates degree from Southern New Hampshire University. I am in my last semester to obtain my bachelors degree. I will be pursuing my masters in special education afterwards.


I am a mother of two special needs children. I am a registered behavior technician and have a background in working with children with autism.

Ms. Shawntay Ballard

Hello, my name is Shawntay Ballard. I grew up in El Paso and I have an associates degree in applied science. My favorites are music and all the exploring we get to do at the school. I have been part of Peace Lutheran Preschool for about eleven years. I am excited that we have a wonderful team of teachers. We are all like family here! I immediately fell in love with the school, the teachers, and the community. 

I love kids and I love to watch them grow. I can’t wait to educate your child and also learn from your child. I believe all children are equal but each child is unique, therefore they learn at their own pace. I will provide your child with the love, growth and the support!


I know that play is a child's most important work, so my goal is to create and maintain a fun environment where your child can grow and explore the world around them safely as well as learn. 

The impact I make in their lives makes for an even bigger and completely gratifying impact in my own life. 

I can’t wait to spend this time on learning and growing with your child!

Ms. Shawntay
