Meet the Teacher

Welcome to Mrs. Hdz.-Ybarra's page!!  I am proud to be a part of the Donna Wernecke team and excited to teach your children. I will also be the 5th and 6th grade Maps, Graphs, and Charts UIL Coach. I would like to share a few things about myself.  This is my 13th year at DWE.  I was a sixth grade teacher here for 12 years, and this year I will be teaching 4th grade. I am a graduate of Mission High School.  I attended UT in Austin for two years, but I received my bachelor's  in Interdisciplinary Studies(education) and a minor in Bilingual Education from UTPA.  I taught first grade at Edinburg ISD for 4 years, then I taught fourth grade in La Joya for 1 year.  Before joining the wonderful Sharyland ISD District, I taught for 5 years at McAllen ISD where I worked as a Reading Recovery teacher and Literacy Interventionist.
