A little story about myself…

      My name is Mayra Ibarra and I am the youngest of two daughters.  My older sister is a senior at Texas Christian University and is graduating with a degree in bilingual education as well.  Since I was raised in Dallas, Texas, it should be of no shock that I am a huge Dallas Cowboys fan.  I put up posters and newspaper articles all over my room and am always proud to wear their jerseys, despite their recent losing season.  In my free time, I like to play volleyball and soccer with my friends just for fun.  I also really enjoy cooking for my friends and having small get-togethers at my apartment.  My favorite subject in school has always been math and I hope for my future students to love math as much as I do.

Why I want to be a teacher...

      Teachers are one of the most influential individuals in children’s life.  I want to be a teacher because I want to       impact students’ lives and guide them in the direction that leads to their purpose of living.  I especially want to be a bilingual teacher because I was a young student in a bilingual program, so I can definitely relate with the students.  I would also like to improve bilingual programs and use what I went through in bilingual classrooms to help students learn English.  At the same time, I want to be a role model to students who have immigrated from other countries by setting an example of going to college and becoming a professional.  Both my parents’ jobs are manual labor and I was brought to this country with my parents.  Therefore, I want to encourage students whose parents may be of working class and immigrants to pursue a higher education and fulfill their dreams.
