My name is Lazaro 'Larry' Placencia. I have the honor and privilege to serve at Hector P. Garcia as the assistant principal. I have a 25 year career in education. I have had the pleasure of being a teacher and an administrator, both at the elementary and secondary level. Most recently, I have had the most satisfying experience as serving as the Dean of Students at Travis Science Academy. Since I have been in the TISD system, I have always heard great things about HPG Elementary, from its wonderful students and families to the dedication that the HPG staff displays daily.
Because of my many years in education, I know that positive relationships, with students and adults, is key to their success. More over, the relationships that I have had throughout my career has given me great pleasure, both, in my professional and personal journey.
I am truly excited in joining the dedicated staff of Hector P. Garcia.
