Hi, my name is Ms. Barrera, and this will be my seventh year teaching Biology at Winston Churchill High School.
I was born here in San Antonio, and went to several schools in the Churchill Cluster. I was an Oak Meadow Maverick, a Coker Cub, and would have been a Churchill Charger, but my family moved to three different states when I was in high school.
I have a lot of family here in San Antonio, but my closest family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. There, my Dad works for UPS, & my Mom is a high school Biology Special Education teacher. My sister is a senior in college at the University of Georgia & my brother is a sophomore at Georgia State. I miss my family, but I see them as often as I can. I also have a wonderful boyfriend, named Matthew, & he and I are expecting our first child September 27! We know the baby is a boy, but we are still working on his name. Matthew and I love animals, and have two dogs, a pit mix named Olive and a Schnoodle named Dixie. We also have three crested geckos & lots of fish that you may meet later in the year! We love to be outside and spent most of our free time this summer either in pools, tubing down local rivers with friends, or kayaking. To be honest, Matthew did all the kayaking this summer!
I went to college at the University of Delaware, where I studied abroad in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, & earned a Bachelor’s in Earth Science Education. I then went to the University of Texas at Austin, where I taught an Introduction to Petroleum Engineering Lab, and earned a Master’s in Science Education before moving back home to San Antonio.
