Hi! My name is Ms. Angela Barrera, and I am so excited to be part of Lackland Elementary's family! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your child's Kindergarten teacher! It's going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and new adventures, and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about your child, but first, I'll tell you a few things about myself.
I was born and raised in McAllen, Texas and graduated from Rowe High School. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos for college (Eat 'em Up, Cats!) and earned my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies receiving my certification as an Early Childhood through Grade 6 English as a Second Language Generalist.
This will be my third year teaching at Lackland Elementary but my seventh year in education. Prior to this, I was teaching Kindergarten at IDEA Carver Academy with IDEA Public Schools. Teaching Kindergarten is the best job in the world!
I am here to ensure that your child ends the school year first grade ready and has fun in the process. Please feel free to call, use Remind, or schedule a parent/teacher conference to address any questions/concerns you may have. We are a team!
Here's to an amazing 2018-2019 school year!
