Meet Ms. Barcelona, our newest AVID Coordinator and elective teacher. Before instructing at La Vega, she was also the AVID coordinator at Westwood High school. Ms. Barcelona states she became a teacher due to her love of working and helping others. In addition, she enjoys helping our youth with planning for their future whether it be a college or career path. This is why she jumped on the opportunity to teach at La Vega, to make a difference in young people’s lives through AVID and College Career Readiness Program. She has developed strong bonds with her students, which is something she enjoys most about La Vega, along with the supportive community of staff members.

To our surprise, in her early 20’s she worked for a NASA subcontractor. Although she adores her job as an educator, if given the chance she would manage her own “Tea Room” restaurant. Growing up she lived in the suburbs of Houston where she was the youngest of four children and happened to be the only girl. As a young child, she wished to follow in her father’s footsteps of becoming a veterinarian since she loves animals. Cheyenne, her daughter, is currently in the 6th grade and the two own a yellow lab, Harley. She manages to balance her career and family by spending quality time with her daughter after getting off of work. Hobbies include attending sporting events, especially college football; traveling, and western dancing. Disorganization would be her biggest pet peeve, which makes sense since she is an AVID Coordinator. Her most valued treasure in life would be her daughter and having quality family time though traditions, laughs, and love. Welcome, Ms. Barcelona.
