Tiffany Barrera joined the Meridian faculty in August 2015 as a kindergarten teacher. Tiffany graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelors degree in child development and education. She worked at an authorized PYP campus in Killeen, Texas for three years teaching fourth grade where she was involved in numerous leadership activities. After her family moved to Snyder, Texas to be near extended family, Tiffany began teaching early childhood grades and served as an academic advisor. After six years in this role, her family returned to the Austin area and was excited to find Meridian – as the school matches her educational philosophy and experiences. Tiffany is certified in early childhood through fourth grade, and has completed Category 1 and advanced IB-PYP training.
