    !Hola! My name is Ms. Robledo, I attended Texas Woman’s University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Bilingual Education. My wish as a teacher is to inspire my students to explore, discover, and develop their own passions and interests. I want to instill in them the importance of their native language and culture as well as their love of learning. I feel extremely happy and excited to be part of Manuel Jara Elementary School. It will be a wonderful school year!

    I grew up knowing that I wanted to make a difference in someone's life, and what better way than becoming a teacher. I am a proud alumni of FWISD, and then went on and graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with my degree in Early Childhood Education and ESL.  The place I call home is outside of Portland, Maine in a small town called Lewiston.

    I taught 3rd grade Math in Dallas ISD for one year and then was welcomed in to the Manuel Jara family. I am currently about to start my Master's degree at Lamar University in Counseling.

    I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in psychology as well as my bachelor’s degree in human and child development from California State University San Bernardino. I am currently working on my master’s degree in early childhood education at the University of North Texas. I work to "ignite in every child a passion for learning" by getting students excited to learn. I try to incorporate my students' interests into my curriculum and find topics that excite my students and make them eager to continue to learn. I love seeing students thrive and believe that knowledge is one of the most important things we can give our children.
