Garnett Wagner - Email My 36 year teaching career began by opening my own pre-school. After 6 years teaching 4 and 5 year olds at home, I moved to Lytle ISD (where I have stayed) and taught kindergarten for 14 years. During my last year in Kindergarten, I was trained in Reading Recovery and moved to first grade to work in that capacity for 8 years. During that time, our school qualified for the Reading First grant and I served as the Local Campus Coach on the Primary campus for 6 years. The last year of the grant our district adopted the TAP model and I became the Master Teacher on the same campus. This is my 5th year as Master Teacher. I have been married for 43 years. We have 3 children and 7 grandchildren, six of whom attend Lytle schools.
