Diana García Marion

Founder

Diana García Marion graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a B.A. in Elementary Education and Spanish in 1970. Her first teaching position was fourth grade at Oakwilde Elementary (now known as Worsham Elementary) in the Aldine ISD. Concerned about reading difficulties that her students encountered, she pursued a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Houston. After five years in Aldine, she accepted a position as an instructor at Stephen F. Austin University while working to design a new bilingual education certification program for the Education Department. After one year, she returned to Houston to pursue her teaching career and start the bilingual program in the Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. She remained in Cy-Fair for thirty-six years, serving as the first bilingual teacher and first bilingual/ESL Coordinator in the district. She retired in January 2011.

Diana García Marion has been an advocate for bilingual students, teachers and parents.Her greatest claim to fame is having given birth to a bilingual teacher (her daughter Michelle) and having taught six first grade students who later became bilingual teachers. Her love for the students that she taught is evident in the warm connections she maintains with her ex-students and parents.

Realizing that the teachers needed to be organized as a strong unit, she helped found the HAABE organization for the greater Houston metropolitan area and then founded the break-away SHABE organization to serve the needs of teachers in the outlying suburban areas of Houston. Her dedication to bilingual education is recognized annually by SHABE through the presentation of the “Diana García Marion Citizenship Award.”
