Mrs. Kimberly Barela


Welcome wildcats!!! My name is Mrs. Barela and I am super excited to be teaching in Kennedale this year. I have been in education for 11 years now however this will be my 2nd time around in Kennedale. I started as a paraprofessional at the junior high and then left to teach 7th and 8th grade Science in White Settlement for the last 6 years, and I will be starting my 2nd year here at JAA. I truly love teaching and I am always looking for fun and engaging ways to make my classroom somewhere my students want to be EVERYDAY!!!!

I am from West Texas and currently live in Midlothian with my husband of 19 years and our 4 children. We are a sports family so I spend most of my time at a soccer field or baseball field. We love to travel and do anything outdoors. 

Again I am super excited about this year and can not wait to make more memories with all you and your families.
