Mr. Ernesto Lara

Welcome to 4th Grade! I’m very excited that you are here!  I've been a teacher at Jackson Keller since 2014.  This is my third year teaching fourth grade.  I am looking forward to seeing how my fourth grade students mature through the school year as they prepare to move ahead into becoming campus leaders and role models.

I graduated in 1992 from The University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science.  I also received my master's degree from UTSA in 2009.  Go Runners!  This will be my 29th year as an elementary school teacher.  Most of those years, I was an ESL fifth grade teacher, but I have had the opportunity to teach from PK-fifth grade. 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, going out to eat, reading, and spending time with my children.  I have been married since December 1992 and have been blessed with 4 wonderful children.  I am a proud grandparent of a very handsome baby boy.  Yes, I am very busy in and outside of school, and I LOVE IT!!!!

I hope to inspire students to work to their fullest potential and to become the best they can in all that they do. Here’s to a FANTASTIC year!!
