Mrs. Barreto

5th Grade DL/ESL Teacher

Campus Technology Liason

My childhood dream to become a teacher started in 2nd grade. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan Univsersity with a focus in Early Childhood Education. I am currently pursuing my masters degree in School Counseling through Texas A&M University. I started working for Manuel Jara in 2011. I have taught grades 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th. I want to inspire my students to become something special at a young age, and that they have a desire to learn and reach their personal goals. I hope that my class loves school just as much as I do!

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!
