Principal's Message

Exemplary Status
Honore Ligarde Elementary


Welcome back to our webpage! My name is Elba Contreras, principal at Honore Ligarde Elementary.  I am very excited to be part of our Ligarde Family. During my 19 years as an LISD educator, I was a teacher, a mathematics instructional specialist, an assistant principal, and a principal.  I was an assistant principal for six years and am delighted to start my seventh year as principal. 

During the summer, most of our teachers  attended various professional development sessions offered by LISD to continue adding instructional tools to their teacher tool kits. I am very proud that our teachers were also part of the LISD Curriculum Writing Team.  The LISD Curriculum Writing Teams met extensive hours to prepare the district curriculum guides for every grade level and content area. Not every teacher signs up to contribute at this level. 

Most of our teachers also attended instructional planning sessions at Ligarde where they had the opportunity to plan and prepare for the 2019-2020 school year! Planning lessons, reviewing 2018-2019 data, planning differentiated activities and laminating center activities were some of the activities they worked on during these campus-based instructional planning sessions.  Our teachers gave up a significant part of their summer break to learn and prepare to service your children. I am extremely proud of the commitment and dedication our Ligarde teachers offer to our students and to our community. Ligarde is the place to be! Go Unicorns!

With positive energy and our commitment to excellence in education, our Ligarde Family looks forward to working with our students and parents this “Magical 2019-2020 school year!” Congratulations H. Ligarde Elementary for being recognized by TEA as an exemplary campus!!

Sincerely, Ms. Elba Contreras Principal
