Mrs. Michele Barrera
Hi! I love our amazing school and the wonderful community. I have been in Redland for now three years. I have been teaching for 17 years, with over a decade of experience in 5th grade ELAR. I have had the opportunity to teach in a variety of states, such as Virginia and Washington. Also, I have taught every single grade level from PreK-5th, and they are all my favorites in their own ways.
This year, I have the wonderful opportunity to be the Targeted Support Teacher and will be supporting grades K-5. I am ecstatic to be able to work with all grade levels and support student growth.
I have 5 wonderful children, ages ranging from 11-25 years old. I have recently become a grandma and I love it! Such an exciting season in my life. My grandbabies just turned 1! My husband is a retired military servicemember, and we have made San Antonio our home. He is also a pilot, so we like to fly in small Cessna planes for fun on the weekends. We also love cheering on the Spurs, having family movie nights, walking our dogs, and exploring the city highlights.
I graduated from Texas A&M Kingsville with my undergraduate and Master's in Instructional Leadership from Concordia University Austin. I have a passion for reading and writing. I can always be found at a bookstore browsing for hours and deciding what new books to add to my collection. Audiobooks are amazing too! I want to instill that joy of reading and writing in all students, so they can share their voices and ideas!
