Karina Rocha



Hello and Welcome JCE Military Families! My name is Karina Rocha and I am the Parent Liaison and one of the Military Liaisons for Sgt. Jose F. Carrasco Elementary School. I work very closely with our other military liaison, Ms. Madrid, who is also one of school counselors for the upper grades. I was born and raised here in El Paso, Texas. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Chicano Studies. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Counseling at Abilene Christian University. Like you all, I am also part of a military/veteran family. I have two brothers who served in the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps for a total of 10 years. I also have a cousin who is currently active duty with the United States Navy and U.S. Marine Corps as a Hospital Corpsman. He is embedded with the Marine Corps as a Medic. One of my brothers s a combat veteran from Operation Iraqi Freedom where he served as a Medic for the United States Marine Corps. He served in the U.S. Navy from 2001-2006. He completed two tours of deployment to Iraq from 2003-2004. Due to my experience with the military, I look forward to assisting you in any way possible. I am excited to get to know each family!

I look forward to working with your children and your family this 2020-2021 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me through email at or you can call me at (915)938-2413.
