My name is Yuri Lara. I obtained my Masters degree in Early Childhood/ Special Education in 2012. I have worked in both public and private institutions, where I taught in various settings, such as self-contained, inclusion, resource, and general education. My teaching philosophy is that everyone is capable of learning, becoming active learners and great citizens of their community. Therefore, my goal is to ensure I cultivate an environment where ALL my students feel safe, comfortable, and welcomed.
My family and I moved to Texas from the East Coast. I'm a wife to an amazing and thoughtful man and a mother of 2 wonderful kids. We love to watch movies and travel to different countries where we can learn new languages and cultures. I look forward to a wonderful year at Lowe Elementary.
