Miss Ibarra

I was born and raised in Laredo, Texas where I graduated from Texas A&M International University. I worked at the Laredo Morning Times for 10 years and it was through working there that I had the opportunity to work with several non-profit organizations such as March of Dimes, United Way, and American Cancer Society where I chaired a Relay for Life. In working with the Laredo Chamber of Commerce and a program called Youth Leadership Laredo, it was that I found my calling in working with educating our future. I enrolled in an Alternative Certification Program and my journey began. 

Education is important to me because growing up, my parents told me that throughout my life things could be taken away from me, but that education never would. I want to give our scholars something that they can hang onto...a life long desire for knowledge, a sense of curiosity and the want to pay it forward.

Parents, thank you for entrusting your children and their future. You are your child's first teacher and I thank you ahead of time for the support. Students, I love you because you are you. My dreams for you extend beyond the four walls of our classroom; do your best in all you do!
