Stella Martinez
Manager of Finance and HR

My name is Stella Matinez, and I am the Financial Coordinator at Shearer Hills ELC. I started working at Shearer Hills as a teacher in 2008. After 8 years I moved to administrative assistant and have been in my current position since 2019. My husband and I have been married 17 years and have 5 children. Two in college, two highschoolers and one in middle school. When we are not busy with sports and school events we love to camp and spend time outdoors. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful children, families, and co-workers!

Rachel Garcia
Administrative Assistant

Hi! My name is Rachel Garcia. I'm not native to San Antonio, but I've called it home for 9 years. My husband and I have three boys. My experience with Shearer Hills ELC began when we enrolled my middle child into the preschool program several years ago. Most of my time working at the ELC was spent as a teacher in the Bumble Bee classroom and was just plain fun! Working at the school has been such a blessing to our family and I am excited to partner with the teachers and staff in this new role. I am currently pursuing my Master of Business and Administration degree from Texas A&M San Antonio. Outside of my time at Shearer Hills and studying, I enjoy being outside, reading fiction, running, traveling and spending time with my family.
