6th / 5th  - Miss A. Juarez   - Language Arts                                                                                                    

Who is Ms. Juarez?

I am so excited to be a part of the school staff this year celebrating my 16th year of teaching.  I grew up in Laredo, but moved away for over 20 years.  Laredo has definitely changed a lot since I’ve been gone.  I graduated from Trinity University and St. Mary’s University both in San Antonio, TX with a Masters in Education and a Masters in Community Counseling.  I worked in San Antonio as an elementary and middle school teacher for 10 years and I moved to Laredo five years ago and taught in UISD.  I am proud to say I am also an avid rancher and enjoy having a second job in raising cattle.  I have many passions and of course they include reading.  I look forward to working with you and your child this year.

My students will quickly learn my favorite saint, Saint Francis of Assisi and my favorite prayer:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

To be understood as to understand;

To be loved as to love;

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
