Miss Castañeda

School Nurse

My name is Carly Castaneda, and I’m so excited to be the nurse at Manuel Jara Elementary! I graduated from Tarleton State University with my BSN, and have been a registered nurse for 4 years.  I enjoy getting to know all of the students and making sure that they stay safe and healthy at school so that they can focus fully on their education.

Mrs. Vargas

Bilingual Dyslexia Teacher

I have over 10 years of experience in grades KG to middles school. I am a Dyslexia Teacher at Manuel Jara.  Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by a difficulty in learning to read, write or spell despite conventional instruction. As a dyslexia teacher my goal is to achieve early identification of students with dyslexia and to provide immediate intervention. My own personal goal is to make a difference in every child I meet.  I look forward to another productive year at MJE!  If you need assistance feel free to contact me at school.
