Isabel Lopez

Education: I earned a Bachelor’s degree from California State University, Northridge in Public Health.

Experience: I spent 7 great years working as a bilingual teacher for Weatherford ISD. 4 years were in 1st grade and 3 years in 3rd grade. During summer school I would get an opportunity to teach various primary grade levels!

Bio: I moved to Texas almost 10 years ago from Los Angeles, CA when my husband was done serving in the U.S. Navy. He is originally from Houston, but told me Fort Worth was the best city in Texas. He was so RIGHT! After working for the Fort Worth Public Library as a Librarian Assistant (2 years), I obtained my certification and began this wonderful teaching career.

If I’m not preparing lesson plans usually I’m trying to learn new things (computer programs, cooking, art, and researching). My son, Ethan is also attending Lily B. where he is beginning 5th grade. He enjoys reading and I hope I have taught him to be a life long learner.


Education: I attended Texas A&M University, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Education.

Experience: I have been teaching since 2017. I have taught 3rd grade and am excited to teach 2nd grade.

Bio: I grew up in a small town of Danbury, Texas. I moved to Fort Worth in July 2017 after I graduated from college. Some of my favorite things I enjoying doing in my free time are; working out, doing anything outdoors, and driving down to visit my family.
